Have you ever found yourself stuck, not knowing how to move forward in your writing? Ever wished your writing had more finesse? Or wondered what goes into the making of a fine poem? This class that explores “poetic ingredients” in the areas of content, sound, and form will increase your ease and expertise—in poetry and prose. Learn how to identify and use these ingredients as we practice simple, playful, result-oriented methods of getting poems (and/or prose) onto the page.
All levels welcome.
This two-hour course is offered during the Pat Conroy Literary Festival in partnership between the Pat Conroy Literary Center and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at USCB. Open to all OLLI members; registration will begin in the fall at https://olli.uscb.edu
