Spread your wings and take flight as we delve into discovering the influence that poetry has had throughout history. Differentiate the elements of poetry and how they are the building blocks in creating a poem. Why do haiku follow a 5 7 5 pattern? When was Blackout poetry originally conceived? Who popularized villanelle?  We are all poets but it takes confidence for us to know it.


By the end of the program you will be able to identify and distinguish varying styles of poetry and know how to properly construct and compose pieces such as limerick, sonnets and many more.
