Improve your villanelle skills, or write your first one. Guided by an internationally published author of sonnets, villanelles, and other metrical poems, you’ll first read time-honored villanelles to see how and why they work. Next the class will write a group villanelle, and then, with or without shortcuts, you’ll start one of your own. You’ll leave with at least one new (draft) or improved villanelle, as well as insights about how writing poetry in form can unlock deeper meaning and enhance everything you write.
