Hunt | The Art and Craft of Poetry: A Consideration of the Sonnet

The generative workshop offers a chance to strengthen your writing practice and begin new poems. We’ll focus on writing sonnets, a fundamental influence on lyrical/narrative poetry, even when we don’t call our poems sonnets, or we approach the form in innovative ways. (Think Terrance Hayes, Diane Seuss, Wanda Coleman, and, well, Bill Shakespeare.) We’ll read and discuss a selection of poems, you’ll write new drafts based on prompts, and I’ll offer feedback (if you’d like) while your workshop mates listen. The workshop aims to foster a supportive atmosphere that encourages and builds a community of poets during and beyond LiTFUSE.
