The Poetic Line

$65.00 Members

In this class, we'll discuss techniques to explore the poetic line. One of the most emphasized elements of form, we will consider the music in our writing, the context, the rhythm of our language, and how our own voices and aesthetics impact the way we open and close a line. We will navigate texts from across genres to identify tools and approaches to create mood, movement, color, landscape, and tone through the art of the line. We will talk enjambment, punctuation, using the page as a canvas, invitations, slammed doors, breadcrumbs, sheet music, and the “so what” of it all. Participants will write from prompts and then, depending on time, share some of their writing.
