      OLLI at UVM Writing Workshop: The Music of Poetry online w/Rebecca Starks

      “Every poem is music,” Mary Oliver has said: “a determined, persuasive, reliable, enthusiastic, and crafted music.” With equal respect for enthusiasm and craft we will explore the overlap between music and poetry, beginning with a primer on meter, and then reading “lyric” poems that accompany, imitate, or discuss particular pieces or forms of music. Participants will be given a prompt to write a poem each week, or they can bring in a poem to revise, focusing on its music. A sampling of 10-12 poems/lyrics will be provided each week, along with short essays on sound in poetry. We will spend the first half hour of each class discussing the reading, and for the last hour participants can read and briefly respond to each other’s poems. (Please note: this is an online class).

      Cost: Payment required - Cost is $35.00 Online registration is required or please call 802 656 5817
