3-Part Poetry Workshop Series
February 13 and 27, March 13, 2019
This three-part workshop will introduce you to three poetic forms - sonnets, ballads, and villanelles - to see how each form has been used in the past and present and increase people's enjoyment of reading and writing by knowing more about the technical side of poetry. At each workshop, participants will read and discuss different poems in that form and there will be a chance to write their own in the intervening weeks between workshops
Hosted by Jess Bauldry and Lux Writers Who Talk
