Six Poems Six Ways [Carolyne Wright]
All Levels | We will write six poems (or more!) in six weeks, focusing on six poetic types: elegy, epistle (letter poem), imitation, ode, panegyric (praise/celebration), and prose poem. We’ll work in lyric and narrative modes, try experimental and nonce strategies, and read and discuss key pieces each week for ideas and inspiration. Reading these poems and generating our own, with feedback from instructor and class members, we will hone our craft as well as enlarge our inspirational spaces.
