"Just prose cut up into lines". This has been offered as a definition of free verse. This class will show you the many reasons why this is a far from accurate definition of a style of poetry, often considered ultra modern, but which has already been around for more than a century. Discover its unique and multi-faceted beauty as an alternatively available style for you, as a poet, to use as you consider appropriate.
Class Begins: In 6 Days
Middles can be troublesome. In novels, middles sometimes "sag" because of the lack of complications or difficulties related to the main plot problem. In this class, students are challenged to work on typical concerns of the middle chapters of a novel: building the complications to lead inevitably to the climax.
Class Begins: April 3rd
MARCH 2017 - HAIKU 201
HAIKU are short, imagistic poems about nature and things that make people feel connected to it. Japanese poets have written haiku for hundreds of years and in the last forty years, the appreciation of haiku has spread all over the world. The essence of haiku is the way in which it succinctly captures observations of the natural world.
Why are people writing haiku? We write it because it is enjoyable and because writing haiku gives us a new way to look at the world.
You too can write haiku!
