The Art and Craft of Poetry


Poets will build their poetry-writing skills with help from past and contemporary masters--everything from generating ideas to examining the finished poem.

They'll learn how to:
* Use journals to develop their observational skills and turn life experiences into ideas for poems
* Master the tools of the trade--voice, line, stanza, title, meter and rhyme
* Acquire fluency in a variety of poetry formats and forms, everything from narrative, lyric and dramatic verse (traditional formats) to fixed, free and sequence styles (traditional forms)
* Fine tune their work Exercises, assignments and sample work from more than 100 standout poets--everyone from Louise Glück to Walt Whitman--ensure that every reader, whether poet, student or bibliophile, discovers just how extraordinary poetry can be.
