An exploration of the craft of making poems by focusing on poetry’s formal and musical elements. The workshop presupposes that an understanding of prosody is all the more important when attempting to write a good free verse poem. This workshop invites experienced writers and novices alike as we develop a common vocabulary, analyze the formal elements of a few celebrated poems, workshop poems volunteered within the group, and complete one or two in-class exercises. This workshop should be useful to ambitious prose writers as well. Writers of all genres and abilities are invited to attend this summer’s writing workshops. Whether you are a seasoned writer looking for new inspiration or a beginner looking for guidance, this is the place for you!
