FREE POETRY MONTH WORKSHOP

Free Poetry Month Workshop (2-4pm) - led by poet Terry Wolverton. Pre-registration required (323) 661-5954.
The topic is "Appreciating Difficult Poems":
Some readers of poetry may get discouraged, intimidated, or even annoyed when they encounter poems that don't seem to communicate their message easily. Indeed, several traditions in modern and contemporary poetry are not about making a clear argument or conveying a sincere emotional experience. These poems have other intentions, and understanding those can help increase appreciation and even enjoyment of them.
Together, we'll read and discuss a few select poems that might be considered "difficult," then play with a writing exercise that might render a "difficult" poem.
