Monday, April 19: Hub City Master Craft Series workshop

HUB CITY, Spartanburg, SC
Master Craft Series workshop
Poetry Workshop with Susan Meyers

Mon., Apr. 19, 2010
7 - 9 p.m.
Subject: Syntax

Crucial to the art of a poem is its syntax, how the words are put together for the sake of ideal phrasing. In this workshop we'll focus on the role of syntax in orchestrating a poem's music-how it affects pacing, tension, and tone. We'll pay attention to not only what the poem says but also how it goes about saying it. The class (open to poets of all levels of experience) will discuss numerous syntactical approaches, read sample poems, and generate new work. Susan Meyers is the author of Keep and Give Away, winner of the SC Poetry Book Prize, the SIBA Book Award for Poetry, and the Brockman-Campbell Book Award. Her poems have also been published in The Southern Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, jubilat, and other journals, as well as Poetry Daily and Verse Daily. A long-time writing instructor, she has an MFA in Creative Writing from Queens University of Charlotte.
