On the evening of Tuesday, December 1, I’ll be a guest speaker on Georgia Heard’s series of online poetry writing workshops called The Poet’s Studio. I’ll be on 7:45-ish EST, 6:45 CST p.m.. I’ve agreed to speak about rhyme and meter, a favorite topic of mine, although this far it out it’s possible that my subject might be widened to include other aspects of poetry.
I copied this just now from Georgia’s description of three of the workshops.
“Tuesdays December 1st – December 15th
7:00-9:30 PM (EST)
Whether you’re beginning your poetry journey, or have written poetry for years, in this 3 session workshop we will play, explore and write in a wide range of poetic forms from traditional forms like the sonnet to contemporary forms like poems-for-two-voices. We’ll explore how to artfully merge form and content. Each week you will receive feedback on what you write from Georgia Heard and your peers.
Irene Latham, author of Nine: A Book of Nonet Poems and This Poem Is A Nest and David Harrison, poet laureate of Drury University, and author of 92 books including his newest After Dark: Poems about Nocturnal Animals will be our special guests in two of the workshops.”
For anyone interested, here’s more information about the workshops and how to sign up. I’m telling you about this now because sessions tend to fill early. https://www.georgiaheard.com/the-poets-studio/
