Writing Better Metaphors: Go Beyond Clichés and Surprise Your Readers

Presented by: John LaPine

Are your poems feeling “tired as a dog?” Are you using similes that seem “old as dirt?” The best, most interesting poems rely on strong, unique metaphors. In this interactive workshop, we’ll practice making old clichés new, and discuss ways to come up with your own, fresh figurative language that won’t leave your readers “snoring like a log.”

When WordSpring month begins April 1st, the video workshop can be found on this page.

Likewise, activities for this workshop in the form of downloadable PDFs will be available.

We hope you enjoy this workshop. Please consider sharing with us that you participated here.
