DESCRIPTION: Poetry is as ancient and as universal as song, and poets continually strive to refine poems, make them more dynamic, more intense, more expressive. In fact, more musical.
In this 2 ½ hour workshop, we will look at poems—our own and those of others—to understand how the construction of the line determines the pace, meaning and impact of a poem. We will examine the power and cadence of line breaks (end-stops and enjambment) and sound effects (rhythm and repetition, consonance and assonance, alliteration and slant rhyme).
Please come with your favourite writing materials, prepared to write!
