The Wonder of the Short Poem ($39/49)
If you tend to write long, narrative poems or find that you write to trim away, I invite you to explore the wonder and challenge of the short lyric with me. We will discuss short poetic forms such as the haiku and tanka, poems by Lucille Clifton, Carl Phillips, Salvatore Quasimodo, Bill Knott and others, as well as complete generative exercises. All levels of experience are welcome. Our aim will be to leave with a new short poem draft.
