Finding Your Poetic Voice

Learn to develop your poetic voice. We’ll read and examine several types of poems like internal monologues, epistolary poems and elegies, written in a variety of voices, tones and styles. Practice constructing and critiquing your poems with an emphasis on developing a recognizable voice. You’ll create work with interesting speakers and a tone that connects with readers.

Special Notes

  • Students should bring something to write with.
