Poetry and Its Forms: Learn the Rules, Then Break Them

In this workshop you will learn about some key forms of poetry and have the chance to work on your own. What are the rules of the Cento, Ghazel, Ekphrastic, Haibun, Haiku, and Sonnet? What makes a free verse poem? Can you create your own form?

Learn the rules and then break them in this interactive and supportive six-session workshop. Each week you will study and read examples of different poetry forms and then write your own poems with prompts. You will have the chance to share your work and receive feedback. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to have a reading and invite guests.

Beginning, emerging and seasoned poets are welcome. This workshop is meant for those looking for an encouraging community of writers who wish to bring their writing to the next level.
