It's been said, great poet's steal. We will be generating new poems by taking cues from wonderful poems as inspiration. We will explore and discuss a selected poem,. Then we stretch our poetry muscles doing some in-class warm ups. At home during the week, you will write (or start) a new poem "under the influence" of the model poem. The next class, we will share the poems; exploring ways to flesh out, hone, or bring more you into it. One week we may create a Deep Image poem; the next a modern Limerick. We may start a poem using another poet's line, or try out hand at a Japanese Tanka or a patchwork poem called a Cento. During the course, each poet has the opportunity to create three to four poems. Participants will need to print out their poems and computer skills are necessary. Poets who do not have a printer can email can get in touch with me. Facilitated DiscussionWriting
