The Craft of Poetry: How to Break the Rules - August 19 - IN-PERSON
Facilitator: Christine Wilson
Time: 10:00 am ET to 12:00 pm ET
Open to: All Genders 16+
There are as many ways to create poetry as there are poets and writers. We will discover together poetry's techniques, terms, and genres as you find and hone your own poetic voice.
The Craft of Poetry will explore an aspect of poetry, look at poets and poems who utilize that aspect, and hone and craft the writer's own work.
In this session, How to Break the Rules: Poetry is evolving and new poets are trying experimental forms. We'll see what's out there and try to remove unnecessary barriers in our own work.
COVID-19 Protocols: All attendees must provide proof of vaccination. Please email a photo of your vaccination card to email@example.com. Your vaccination status will be kept confidential on file with the office. Please note that if you have already provided your proof of vaccination in order to attend a previous class or event with Women Writing for (a) Change, you do not need to send it again. In addition, masks will be optional.
What Motivates Christine:
To both demystify poetry and encourage others to embrace the mystery.
To support writers in honing their own poetic voice.
To cultivate a brave space for poets to listen, share, and grow.
