THE POWER OF COMPRESSION, SAYING MORE WITH LESS
Rosemary Royston, 4 Sessions, Mondays, September 17 - October 8, 1:10 pm - 3:10 pm
The focus of this course will be on compression. Strong poems use diction, image, metaphor, and symbols to relay quite a bit of information with just a few words. Attention will be given to very short poems along with more traditional length poems. Participants will write their own poems in response to prompts, and class members will have their poetry discussed in the workshop setting. All levels welcome.
