In this reading-and-writing immersion in sonnets, we’ll enjoy a buffet of sonnets in English from the Elizabethan era (Shakespeare, Michael Drayton, Fulke Greville, John Donne) to the present (Ted Berrigan, Olena Kalytiak Davis, Ben Lerner) and try writing several different varieties. We’ll workshop them, hopefully providing a few volts of lyric electricity to carry forward from the class.
Ed Skoog is the author of two books of poems, Rough Day and Mister Skylight, both published by Copper Canyon Press. His poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, The Paris Review, Poetry, Poetry Northwest, and elsewhere.
