Course Description

Poetry has the capacity to remake and translate the things of the world into new ways of thinking about them. We have been drawn to poetry since before the written language. You will explore a toolbox of poetic techniques and how to locate, write and edit your own work. We will examine closely how simile and metaphor, classical forms, rhythm and rhyme operate in the design of poetry, as well as contemporary Spoken Word.
