Poetry as Memoir: Defining Moments in a Life with ...

Presented by Indiana Writers Center at Indiana Writers Center

Instructor:  Kyle D.Craig

 

Each life has its crossroads, defining moments that determine its direction.  In this poetry workshop, we will use the techniques of memoir to explore the significant moments in our own life or in the life of someone else.  That “someone else” could be anyone who intrigues you—an ancestor, a historical figure, a literary or mythological character, or even a persona from your imagination.  Exercises and assignments will be geared toward helping you develop a collection of poems that, linked together, reveal a life story. You will study how various writers utilize certain poetic elements in their poems, as well as workshop each other’s poems. Beginning poets are welcome, as well as advanced.
