Overview: To Awaken the Poet in You
Audience: All Ages
Many people think that poetry is just for stuffy, high-brow types. The truth is, like most things in life, poetry is what you make of it, and this presentation will show that anyone can find self-expression in poetic form
First, the program touches on basic elements of poetry such as metre, stressed and unstressed syllables, and rhythm. Instruction is at a beginner’s level. Questions are encouraged at any time.
Secondly, the structures of five popular forms of poetry are explored. Those are: couplets, sonnet, quatrane, haiku, and free verse. Again, the information is geared toward “budding” poets. Printed materials outline points of topic, classic examples, and resource references.
