Un(strict) Forms [Maya C. Popa]

All Levels | Open to beginners and seasoned formalists alike, this three-hour craft class and workshop will consider poetic forms—among them sonnets, villanelles, and haiku—as well as formalist impulses in structure and rhyme scheme with an eye (and ear) for how these elements can be borrowed by non-formalists to improve understanding of the role that pattern and sound play in poetry. Poets read will include Sir Thomas Wyatt, Kobayashi Issa, Elisabeth Bishop, Thomas Hood, Mary Ruefle, Franny Choi, and others. Exercises will encourage, though in no way require, you to write in form.
