Generating Poetry [Judith Roche]
Through a series of targeted exercises and by reading an array of poets, we’ll work on generating new poems. Along the way, we’ll discuss the elements of poetry (phanopoeia, melopoeia, and logopoeia) and issues of craft. This is a writing and talking class more than a reading class. Our goal is to have several completed poems by the end of the class and a number of poem starts, ideas, and inspirations to work at later. All experience levels welcome.
