Modern poets are always inventing something new. Why can’t you?
For centuries, poets have bent word into classic forms like the sonnet and the sestina. Many of these offer structure and allow poets to pay homage and construct with rules to guide them. In our modern days, poets are beginning to create their own forms and reclaim what it is to be a master of their craft. In this course, we will examine some modern day poetic forms and even create one or two of our own.
TAKE THIS CLASS IF
- You write poetry and are ready to try something new and daring.
- You want to bend and break the rules.
- You’re interested in learning more about poetic forms.
The deadline to register for this class is Wednesday, April 28 at 5 p.m. CDT.
