The Worcester Public Library is sponsoring a new poetry writing workshop with WCPA board member Susan Roney-O’Brien. The virtual workshop will take place on Saturday, December 5 between 11 am and noon. Here’s the workshop description:
Metaphors Be with You – And they are. You say, S/he’s a bear in the morning, not a literal statement, but figurative, a comparison that brings the image to life. Metaphors, similes, personification, apostrophe, irony…all these handy tools build fresh images through the use of our senses. Beginning with definitions and readings of poems, we’ll create our own tapestries of words, combine figurative language and literal experiences to forge “the best words in the best order.”
Two other poetry writing workshops will be held on January 2 and February 6, 2021. More information, along with registration links, once they are available.
