Fun with Forms Poetry Workshop

Fun with Forms Poetry Workshop

What is poetic form and why might we use it? Sonnets, haikus and villanelles are just a few of the hundreds of poetic forms that some writers use to add structure, rhythm and musicality to their poems. Form may seem intimidating, but it can be a way to find freedom, innovation and playfulness with our writing. In this workshop, we’ll read poems in various forms, then play with fun and easy forms in our own writing, including the abecedarian, the “telephone number poem” and the cinquain. All levels of experience are welcome! This free workshop is offered in partnership with Poem City. Please bring paper and a pen.
