The Poem as a Puzzle

Presenter: Eloisa Amezcua

How is writing in a fixed form like solving a puzzle? In this workshop we will explore the ways in which we have all of the tools (words) to write a poem when working with fixed poetic forms (ghazals, pantoums, sestinas, etc.). We will focus on writing ghazals individually for the generative portion of class, as well as write a renga as a class.
