Writing Short: Poetry in the Palm of Your Hand
The next workshop I’m teaching for Writespace Houston is Writing Short: Poetry in the Palm of Your Hand. Poetry doesn’t need to be long to be profound or funny or beautiful. Discover the joys of writing short poems in this one-day workshop. We’ll talk about using limited forms like haiku to help us be more creative, and how to create an entire scene or mood in just one short stanza. We’ll find inspiration in everyday objects, tell stories in short works, and explore rhyme, meter, and free verse. Writers of all levels are welcome.
