Reading and Crafting Poems of Love 

Days: 5 Mondays
Time: 7:30 PM-9:30 PM
Dates: 1/14/2019–2/11/2019
Location: Bethesda
Level: Beginner
Genre(s): Poetry

Workshop Leader: Rose Strode
Nearly everyone attempts to write a love poem at some point: a poem to a beloved person; a poem about love; or a poem about the loss of love. Love is never the only emotion in a love poem: it may also contain joy, regret, gratitude, anger, grief, or bewilderment, and it is the combination of emotions that make it interesting, and heighten the ideas. Participants in this workshop will study how authors have approached this complex, eternal subject, and explore ways to make this topic their own. Participants will read work by William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Adrienne Rich, Walt Whitman, Kim Addonizio, Rowan Ricardo Phillips, Jack Gilbert, and Jane Hirshfield, among others, and explore love poems that are unexpected in their approach. The class will focus on discussion and in-class exercises to explore how the authors use technique to express their thoughts, and apply these strategies to their own work.
