April 2018: Come Play with Poetry

Celebrate National Poetry Month in April and try your hand at poetry.  No experience necessary.

In each class, we’ll explore a different poetry forms.   We’ll begin with Haiku, one of the most accessible forms of poetry.  We’ll move to the fascinating Pantoum, a patterned with repeating lines which yields a structure both intriguing  and revealing.  In the third class, we’ll tackle the Villanelle, a lyrical, rhyming poem that also uses a formula of repeated lines.  I will guide you step-by-step in creating their poems. Come and play!
