COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Sound, Subject, Imagination: Exploring the Three Pillars of Poetry

For writers who wish to study how the imagination and sound work together to enhance the subject of their poems. A poem is always about the relationship between its sonic and imaginative parts, this is what convinces the ear that the subject is not only real but important. We will study techniques used by poets across various eras as well as workshop your own poems extensively in search of the keenest balance in your work between these three pillars of the art of poetry.
