Six Week Poetry Course with Theresa Munoz
April 30, 2018, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
The Skriva Writing School hosts a six-week course that will take participants through various aspects of the craft of poetry, to deepen understanding of one’s voice and creative practice. The course begins with new ways of ‘starting’ poems and ends with a session on writing a sequence of poems linked by theme. Other workshop topics look at current trends in contemporary poetry such as writing about crisis, autobiographical and empathetic writing, and poems which use repetition and sound to create a sense of musicality. Throughout, the course looks at works by contemporary poets and current trends in poetry form, including the lyric essay and modern sonnet. The course is a mix of reading, discussion and writing and there is an opportunity for feedback on a submission of poems at the end of the course. the tutor on this course is award-winning poet Theresa Munoz, author of Settle.
