Toward a Radical Poetics with Lissa Kiernan

When: Sat., Nov. 5, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. 2016

This new, six-week workshop will explore and foster poetry that bears witness to social injustice, raises awareness, disturbs silence, and inspires positive change. Students will learn a variety of techniques (metaphor, humor, compression, hyperbole) and study several poetic sub-genres (found, formal, persona and documentary poetry) that help to distill the poetic from the polemic.
