Poetry Writing 101 with Susan Roney-O’Brien: Sound, Resound
January 2, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Worcester Public Library is sponsoring a poetry writing workshop with WCPA board member Susan Roney-O’Brien. The virtual workshop will take place on Saturday, January 2, between 11 am and noon. Here’s the workshop description:
Poetry begins in the body and sings in the ear. We hear alliteration, assonance, consonance, euphony, cacophony, rhyme, rhythm, anaphora, and all kinds of repetition, and yet are not always aware of what we hear. Sound yanks, caresses and awakens us to mood, tone, image, and meaning. Join in the listening. We’ll use a few poems as examples and some prompts to get us moving, initiate a beat, perhaps syncopate the rhythm and integrate rhyme so that we can quickstep into the dance of creation.
