At a Station of the Metro – Ezra Pound
The apparition of the faces in the crowd;
petals on a wet, black bough.
Poetry is all around us. Adverts use similes and metaphors to grab our attention. We reach for poetry at times of need.
Yet how do we write it?
What is a poem and how do we find our voice?
This course is for anyone who wants to discover their poetic voice. You can be a newcomer to poetry or someone who has been writing awhile but wants to engage in group activities. Over the eight weeks we will look at things such as the image, form, and musicality, and have lots of fun with words.
