Issues of Craft [Judith Roche]
Intermediate | A writing class focused on sharpening the tools in the poet’s toolbox. Using poem examples, we’ll look at basic elements of poetry and various craft issues, including line breaks, meter, rhyme and form, repetition, and revision. Each session will include a craft lecture with examples, in-class writing exercises, and a workshop session to look at participants’ poems. A good introduction to beginners and a good review for more experienced poets. We’ll be generating new poems with the exercises, ideas, and examples.
