Poetry has been defined as “The best words in the best order”. In this workshop, we will start with a long look at words, what they are capable of doing in a poem and how to use them for the best response from your readers. Feel free to bring your own notebook. Let’s work on writing the best poems in the world, using writing prompts and word banks! Then you can share them with the group, polish them to perfection, and explore contests and journals where your poetry can be published.
