Odd Forms: Inventing Structure to Free the Imagination

Odd Forms: Inventing Structure to Free the Imagination

$345.00

Why do poets crave constraint? In this generative workshop, we will try out numerous playfully named forms, such as the bop, the sonnenizio, the tritina, the golden shovel, the demi-sonnet, the duplex, the gigan, the hay(na)ku, and more. Readings will include poems by Afaa Michael Weaver, Kim Addonizio, Erin Murphy, Jericho Brown, Terrance Hayes, and Marie Ponsot. We will discover how constraint removes our mental handcuffs and frees us to say the things we need to communicate.
