What even IS poetry, and how do we create it? In this class series, we will explore the fantabulous world of words, the ways we can play with them, and so much more! We will learn fancy poetic terms (like verse, stanza, lines), and literary devices (like alliteration, simile, metaphor, personification), and how to use them. We'll explore poetry types like free verse, found poetry, ekphrasis, acrostics, and more. Most importantly, we will Share, Enjoy, and Create together!
