Poetry Workshop
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Membership in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is required to register for Osher classes. If you are unsure about your membership status, call us at 801-581-7155. If you are new to Osher, follow the Membership link at the right to learn more about membership.

Participants will be introduced to three primary poetic tools through in-class exercises led by the instructor: how to use figurative language like a maestro, how to find original subjects to write about, and how to create poems in a form (not sonnets, not villanelles, etc.) that people forget is a great form in the first place. There will be two poetry-writing assignments, and the results will be gathered into a .doc file for all class participants - like a mini e-Book, like the best mail you will get all week. Part 1: Good Similes Make Good Neighbors. Part 2: How to Write a How-To Poem.
