THE MAGIC OF THE POETIC LINE: A GENERATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP IN WHICH WE EXPLORE THE CRAFT OF LINE BREAKS & OTHER VISUAL AND AUDITORY EXPERIENCES
- Date: Saturday, January 28, 2017
- Times: 10am – 3:30pm
- Location: Beyond Baroque Literary Center, 681 Venice Blvd., Venice, CA, 90291
Description: Part of what makes poetry a magical art is the poet’s ability to orchestrate language in a way that creates an unforgettable experience in a reader. Line breaks, spacing, and punctuation provide cues intrinsic to that orchestration. How do we determine when and why to break the lines in our poems? How might visual spacing or punctuation further reveal a poem’s meanings? We’ll consider a sampling of exciting free-verse possibilities available to us in the shaping of our poems and we’ll write, keeping in mind that every turn of the line is a turn toward deeper meaning.
* This workshop will include a break from 12:00 to 1:30 pm.
