Modes in Poems


November 18; Saturday, 1pm-4pm

Instructor: Natasha Sajé
Tuition: Early Bird $105 (Members only through November 3)
$120 (Members); $165 (Non-members)

Identifying mode in poems is a valuable diagnostic and revision method. In this workshop, we’ll define the four modes—lyric, narrative, argument, description—and read examples of each. Then we’ll turn to participants’ poems, first identifying the dominant mode and then asking whether the poem would be better served by a different one. Please bring copies of two poems that you’re unhappy with, but note that we might not have time for both.
