How do YOU go about writing a poem? Would you like to explore other ways of approaching poetry? Join Anna Quon for a Zoom poetry lab to locate your “muse” in unexpected ways and places, and explore how to cultivate “inspiration”.
This workshop is intended for beginner or emerging poets.
PRE-HOMEWORK: write a poem or select one you have written before and reflect on how you wrote it to share with the group. Where did you start? How did you decide the form it would take, the poetic devices you would use? And what did you do with it once you finished the first draft? Share your poem and reflections with the group and try your hand at approaching writing a poem from a different angle, path or point than you are used to. It’s not math or science but it IS an experiment!
