Poetry for the People
Art and learning can be a welcome distraction or a method of healing in times of grief, distress, and strife. Connecting with others through art can also help ease us through this uncertain and sometimes lonely period. Love Your Rebellion created Poetry for the People to help folks refine their poetry skills and connect with other poets via a digital workshop. Each 60-minute course hosted via Zoom will teach a poetic technique, provides exercises to develop that technique, and provides a workshop each class meeting.
Devices, Part 1: Imagery
Learn how to create vivid imagery in your poetry. Introduction to course, and the workshop process.
Devices, Part 2: Simile/Metaphor
Learn how to build unique metaphors and similes. First workshop round.
Devices, Part 3: Juxtaposition
Learn how to use juxtaposition to influence the tone of your poetry. Second workshop round.
Sound: Slant Rhyme
Learn about slant rhyme and how to use the musicality of language. Third workshop round.
Rhythm: Line Breaks
Learn how to use line breaks – or none at all – to set the pace and mood of a poem. Fourth workshop round.
