Poetry Forms [Lydia K. Valentine]
All Levels | Audre Lorde said, “Poetry is the way we help give name to the nameless so it can be thought.” The prospect of crafting thoughtful, meaningful reflection on life can be daunting on a good day and is even more so in uncertain and tumultuous times like we are in today. Using poetic forms can provide a structure that makes the writing easier. In this workshop, you’ll be exposed to and write in poetic forms from the pantoum to the golden shovel. No prior writing experience necessary.
