This Zoom workshop will meet on the second and fourth Thursdays in January and February. Poet and writing instructor, Zara Raab, will combine discussions of good poems and how to read them with poetic techniques. The focus will be on contemporary poets. Registration is required and space is limited.
Session 1: Racy Tales. Ballads. From the South American ballads by Elizabeth Bishop to the ballad forms of Bob Dylan, Brigit Pegeen Kelly, and our own Newburyport poet Alfred Nicol. The rules to play by and why they matter.
