Join Priscilla Long in a journey of poem generation using three types of poems as models. We'll look at models of three forms of poems, and we'll generate drafts of our own poems using these models as our guides. The first form is an elegy that progresses from lament to self reflection to consolation. The second form (more a strategy) is a persona poem with the speaker in the poem being non-human (either an object or a non-human being). The third form is the villanelle. Bring a notebook to write in. Priscilla Long is a Seattle-based writer and poet, and a longtime independent teacher of writing. Following class, she will present a talk about her most recent book, Dancing with the Muse in Old Age. Class size is limited--register early!
