Poetry for Writer
April is National Poetry Month
Understanding poetic techniques can enhance and even change the way you write, adding vibrancy, precision, and depth of feeling to your prose. In this seminar you will gain knowledge on how the craft techniques of poets relate to the writing of essay and memoir.
Using your own writing, you will learn how to paint word pictures, develop themes, create moods and deepen reader connections. For essayists and memoirists, learning from a poet means looking more closely at the rubric of language and understanding how it can strengthen your writing.
