 What are the things most immediate to a poet? This program will encourage participants to interrogate your present moment and also where you are from. We will ask ourselves how these things define us, or not. Using the basic elements of poetic craft, we will discuss voice, form, sensory detail, and the importance of the image in a poem. We will end up learning about each other and ourselves.
