Poetry is an emotionally-charged writing discipline that utilizes concrete building blocks to serve as structure. Craft techniques are nigh objective tools that exist to subsidize a subjective experience. This workshop offers participants new perspective by revisiting well-worn structural techniques through unique—yet approachable—visual representations, writing exercises, and science-inspired analysis. It is generative, and you will make cool stuff.
