What you'll learn in this poetry class:

Here’s an opportunity to improve your ear for meter, and to fine-tune your understanding of how meter works in poetry. Have you ever wondered how scanning the lines of your first draft can make for a better poem? Do you know why listening for the natural rhythms of speech can strengthen your writing?

With the help of a widely published author of sonnets, villanelles, and other metrical poems, this one-day workshop will include reading and scanning of well-known poems, writing exercises, and close examination of one or two poems you’ve drafted prior to the class. You'll leave with new insights about improving the auditory qualities of all your poems and prose.
