Leaps and Swerves: Creating Surprise in Poetry Section II [Dilruba Ahmed]
All Levels | Let’s explore unexpected moves in poems: disruptions to syntax, shifts in tone, and associative leaps. Get ready for in-class prompts that invite a sense of wildness and surprise to our writing. Together, we’ll investigate how poets such as Carl Phillips, Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Matthew Olzmann, Rick Barot, Elizabeth Bishop, and Lawson Fusao Inada use craft strategies to establish an interplay between stabilizing and destabilizing forces in their work while engaging the reader in a journey of discovery.
