If you're a poet living in #LiteraryDallas we're excited to offer Poetry I: Introduction to Contemporary Poetry. This is a 6-week poetry workshop led by Sebastian H. Paramo that begins on May 16th. We hope you'll join us!
This introductory course is designed to expose you to living poets and the contemporary poetry scene. You'll examine poets from the early 20th century and quickly move toward poets writing today. We’ll look at Richard Hugo’s book The Triggering Town as a means for inspiration and finding your own voice. The line, the stanza, metaphor, and other fundamental techniques will be discussed.
Each week, you'll participate in writing discussions and experiments to highlight these techniques. The central focus will be on student work and each writer will have four opportunities to have their work critiqued. Students will be expected to provide written feedback that is respectful and constructive for the writer that supports their vision and voice.
