Why do so many poets writing today shy away from rhyme? Maybe it’s because they’re afraid it will make their poems sound old-fashioned. In fact, knowing how to rhyme subtly and skillfully can achieve quite the opposite. In this workshop, we will examine the many different rhyming strategies available. Discussing what distinguishes a “good” rhyme from a weak one will lead us to some conclusions about what rhyme can add to a poem and how it can be used to make your poems both more memorable and more musical.
