Seminar: The Poetry Potluck

October 15 @ 5:25 pm - 6:55 pm

The Poetry Potluck, with Andrea M
Teacher bio, http://peoplescolloquium.org/teacher-bios/

Bring your poetry queries and your best-loved poems. We will spend each class examining the workings of effective poems. Points of discussion will include image, syntax, the line, word choice, and meter. The goal will always be to understand how the poem effectively conveys emotion and builds its meaning. Each week will feature 1-2 poems chosen by a different community member, so all participants will also have the opportunity to bring their own favorites to examine and discuss. Bring the poems you love or the ones that leave you confounded or awestruck or just haunt you for days on end. Come join us in learning from the poets we admire!
