So You Want To Be a Poet?

I will use my latest book as a guide to introduce readers to poetic forms like sonnets, nonets and limericks, poetic stanzas of various lengths, and metered lines that demonstrate the beat and rhythm of rhymed and unrhymed poetry. We will then practice creating poems as well using word exercises.
