Forming Form: On Poetic Shape [Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet]
Intermediate/Advanced | For poets working in so-called free verse, the shape of a poem is a question that must be asked with every new piece. In this class, we’ll explore techniques for finding and working with free-verse form. What are the effects of each of our choices? Bring three poems in progress; we’ll use discussion, reading, and formal play to explore which form each poem wants to take.
