“Poetry is language at its most distilled and powerful,” writes Rita Dove. “Poetry is the journal of a sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air,” suggests Carl Sandburg. And Marianne Moore quips, “Poetry is the art of creating imaginary toads in real gardens.” These are just three of countless definitions of poetry. When did you fall in love with poetry? Which poem (by another poet) ignited your passion to write poetry? Please bring that poem to class. Is there a new poem (by either that same poet or another poet) you’ve since discovered that inspires you today? Bring that poem to class too; we will use both poems in a writing exercise. We will also discuss and try out other devices poets frequently use to craft poetry. This is a show up, write, and share workshop held over zoom. Course comes with a PDF, “Deepening Your Relationship to Poetry.”
