Shape Shifting: Persona Poems and Shifting Voice

Let your poems run wild as you experiment with persona. We will get out of our own heads, put on the mask of persona and inhabit the voice of another through our poems. Whether you are working with historical subjects, fantasy characters, or even inanimate objects, we will look at capturing the authenticity of that speaker and allow a level of freedom, play and experimentation to your work. We will explore masters of the persona poem such as Ai, Cornelius Eady, C.D. Wright, Patricia Smith, Luise Gluck, Gregory Orr and others, and strive to create a series in that “other” voice that tugs at us. Join the masquerade with us as we explore in a fun and supportive environment and workshop with one another.

Please note: This class is an online class. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
