Living Room Craft Talk with Ellen Bass I
July 10, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
From Ellen Bass:
“If you want to learn more about the strategies that you can employ to write poems that are more vivid, arresting, meaningful and complex, please join Ellen Bass for this craft talk series on Fridays: July 10, 17, 24, 31, August 7 & 14 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET.
Ellen will be presenting practical teachings that you’ll be able to put to use at whatever stage of development you’re at—whether you’re just beginning or are an experienced and published poet. Though these talks are focused on poetry, prose writers are welcome too. If you write memoir or fiction, you will find that this precise attention to language will enrich your work as well.
This week’s topic will be The Art of Metaphor: What Is It Like?
Each talk will be an hour to hour and a half long and will include a discussion of exemplary poems that illustrate these aspects of the craft, as well as practical guidance for how you might bring these elements into your own poems. The talk will be followed by a half an hour for questions.”
