Breaking the Line

Lineation is one of a poet’s fundamental tools—the warp to the weft of our language, with the power to affect voice, tone, pacing, meaning, and more. In this class, we'll use discussion, close reading, and serious play to explore the wide-ranging powers of the line and discover new possibilities for our own poems.
