Lineation Elation [Dilruba Ahmed]
All Levels | This hands-on session will leave you singing the praises of lineation! Explore a “toolkit” of strategies that will help you lineate your poems with confidence and expression. We’ll discuss how lineation choices can have an impact on tone, meaning, emphasis, pacing, surprise, and more. Students can expect to lineate the work of others—and their own!—using a variety of approaches, to create various effects. Bring 2–3 draft poems to class (ideally about 8–10 lines long) for experimentation.
