Trans/forming: Old Forms to Sing a New Song

This will be a full day, starting with a brief history of writing poetry in traditional forms in English and how this evolved to “free form” or free verse, and beyond. We’ll do various hands-on exercises writing in a variety of forms, but also go back (way back!) into the origins of the music of poetry – rhythm and cadence, or metre.

Bring a bagged lunch. Coffee and tea will be provided.
