The Gambling Poet: A Handful of Poems

Do you find your­self always writ­ing the same kind of poem? Are you lim­it­ed by rhyme or free’ verse and want to break out and try some­thing new? Learn the craft of poet­ry as you explore line and stan­za breaks, breath, metaphor and imagery, nar­ra­tive, as well as var­i­ous styles of poet­ry. Through exer­cis­es, play and per­for­mance, par­tic­i­pants will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to write var­i­ous forms of poet­ry includ­ing per­for­mance poems in a sup­port­ive envi­ron­ment that encour­ages explo­ration and exper­i­men­ta­tion. It’s worth the gamble!
