Fixed Forms in Poetry: Playing Tennis with a Net
In celebration of National Poetry Month, please join us for this 5-session poetry workshop led by Paul Lamar!
About free verse Robert Frost said, "It's like playing tennis without a net." In this workshop the net will be up! Fixed forms are poems that are written in a prescribed fashion. For example, a sonnet has 14 lines, 10 syllables/ line, with a particular rhyme scheme. Haiku is another familiar fixed form. There are also ghazals, triolets, villanelles, limericks, pantoums, pleiades, etc. We'll study some of these forms and compose our own pieces. Beginning and experienced poets are welcome.
This program is for adults 18 and up, and will take place over Zoom. Please register below and you will receive the Zoom link and instructions for joining shortly before the first session. We will meet every Thursday at 7 pm, starting on Thursday, April 1, and ending Thursday, April 29.
