ONLINE Poet’s Toolbox
Learn how to edit and polish poems using prosody: the science of sound. The better we hear the words we create the better we’re able to create alluring rhythm patterns that ease the ear and assists both comprehension and appreciation of the poem. Bring to class poems you’d like to improve and let’s polish them up with confidence!
This is an interactive workshop using the Zoom web conferencing platform.
Jade O’Riley teaches many poetry forms and styles and developed an editing method entitled Poet’s Toolbox to help poets gain writing confidence. Since 2007 Jade has taught poetry in several venues including City of Edmonton, Poetry Festival and Stroll of Poets; she’s published fifteen poetry chapbooks featuring the poets from her classes.
