A 90-Minute online live poetry workshop.

Have you ever wondered how to make a narrative poem and tell your own story in a way that is interesting to yourself and others?

Most of us poets feel this way. Often we wonder how to make our poetry catch the eye of an editor, or make it seem more magical or more down to earth?

So what really works? Poet Polly Alice will share three ways to add place and power to your narrative poetry. In this poetry prompt workshop, you explore encouraging concepts to brighted and enliven narrative poetry such as dreamscape, aperture, and magical realism. Even better we will use poems you bring to the workshop, so you don't have to wonder how the ideas apply to your own work.

This class is fun for beginner and long time poets alike!
