"Tell all the truth," wrote Emily Dickinson, "but tell it slant." Poetry, through wordplay and its various forms, allows us to experiment artfully with the matter of life – our loves and losses, fears and dreams, and every mundane thing in between – so as to give it better resonance, a heightened urgency, and a timeless quality. In this class, our reading and discussion of good poems will frame in-class writing exercises and the creation and sharing of our own good poems.
This event will be held at the AVA Gallery in Lebanon, New Hampshire.
