Modern poetry commonly engages free verse, but does that mean that rhythm is no longer important? Not at all—rhythm continues to be an important aspect of poetry. This workshop focuses on metrical rhythm in poetry. Adeptness with metrical rhythm is not only an essential skill in writing formal verse, it can also improve the sense of feel and flow in free verse, moving it off the page and into the body.
Join us on Thursday, Jan. 23 at the Waverly Resource Library from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Registration is free.
