About the Event

The Mental Talkies Presents Poetry Workshop.

 

A good poem pays close and generous attention to the things of the world, to the feelings in our hearts, to the struggles of existence, and to the life of the mind.

 

Poems pay the same kind of fierce but loving attention to language itself and use it with care to do justice to the facts and mysteries of our places and our lives.

 

The better the poem you write or read, the better you belong in your life and your world and days.

 

 

Outcomes

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

·        Discover what goes on inside a poem, how to make your sing and how to see and write your life more fully

·        Unpack some fine poems that may show you how to write your own with more grace

·        write poems in new ways

·        Utilize the insightful feedback received on your work

·        Practice the techniques that poets, through the ages, employ to wake your language and your lives more fully to the facts and mysteries of existence

·        Employ some forms, tricks and devices to attend more closely to your language and turn out poems more likely to satisfy yourself and find your way to publication.

 

 

 

Poetry Workshop covers in this introduction to the nature and uses and practice of poetry, we will explore:

1.    The nature of a line and the uses of enjambment.

2. Speech music, rhythm and rhyme.

3. Point of view, sensibility and voice.

4. Fashion, style, convention and performance.

5. The necessary opacity of a poem—how to keep your secrets, but tell your reader hers; how to tell all the truth, but tell it slant.

6. Devices for getting out of your own way and letting the poem find you and speak itself in your voice.

Poetic modes and sensibilities: lyric, confessional, declamatory, ironical, casual, formal, conversational, operatic, oracular, academical, comical.
