Featured Presentation: Poetry Panel: Come learn about writing poetry!

Panelists: Judith Chumlea-Cohan, Larry Harris, Judith Robinson (moderator: Joe Myers)

Our CWC poets will have a panel discussion about the process of writing poetry. Topics will include: lyric versus narrative poetry; traditional meter and rhyme versus free verse; types of poetic structure, such as sonnet, haiku, villanelle etc.; philosophies of poetics; and traditional versus modern themes. Panelists will address these ¬†topics and how each does or does not apply to their own writing. They will also read some of their verse to show examples of what they're talking about. Come learn about poetry and join the fun!
