Poetic Forms and Freedoms [Carolyne Wright]

All Levels | Despite sonnets that terrified us in high school, forms have a delightful ability to draw poetry out of us. We will focus on poetic diction, techniques, and forms; stanza patterns and received verse forms (ghazals, pantoums, sestinas, sonnets, triolets, villanelles, etc.); rhythm and lineation; as well as “nonce” forms such as abecedarians, acrostics, American haiku, anaphoras / litanies, and rounds. We will practice writing in these forms, with Finch & Varnes’ An Exaltation of Forms as companion text.
