This workshop puts the ideas from Meg Kearney’s September 21 craft talk into practice. Writers will spend the first hour exploring the power of the extended metaphor and create poems that express the otherwise inexpressible. In the second hour, we’ll talk about sonnets and what these “little songs” might lead us to sing. We’ll begin with a simple exercise to get participants thinking in fresh, concrete ways; read some sample poems; and then draft some new work.
This program will be hosted using the meeting software Zoom. A Johnson County Library staff member will contact registrants via the email you registered with the day of the program with instructions on how to access the Zoom meeting. You do not need to download any software or create an account.
