Narrative Poetry at Saguaro National Park West

October 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

"Humans have long been attracted to the art of storytelling. One could say that our lives are composed of a series of different stories that we tell ourselves and/or one another. In this workshop, we'll look at this narrative art and how to effectively channel our experiences into powerful poetry. We'll study and discuss examples of celebrated poems and discuss techniques for sound and crafting good poetry. Then, through a series of writing prompts, we'll examine our own narratives and turn them into poems. This course will also consider tempo, pacing, and effective use of line breaks. This workshop is for anyone interested in poetry and storytelling."

This workshop is limited to 15 participants (waitlist available).
