 Saturday, September 11th, 1:30-3:30 PM




Poet and professor, Catherine Carter offers a a two-hour workshop for NCWN-West via Zoom from 1:30-3:30 on Saturday, September 11th.  The workshop focuses on using adding of internal slant rhyme to poems to echo off existing keywords and increase poems’ music, along with close attention to the impact of lines’ end words.  For the first hour, poets will look at published poems and the ways in which their sounds enhance their content; for the second hour, participants will work on enhancing the sounds in a short poem of their own and, if they like, share the results with the group.  


Participants are asked to have on hand a HARD COPY of a draft of a short poem of their own, less than one page long, for this activity. 


Beginners and more experienced poets are all welcome.
