ONLINE Resonance in Writing: The Personal to the Universal
We will consider pieces in which Imagery and Resonance are prominent and look at how they are used for effect. What word choices in your poetry (and general writing) describe and evoke? How does this affect tone and reinforce theme? You may say, “My heart is like a bird” — but is it an eagle? a vulture? A dove? an albatross? How does your experience or perspective resonate with your readers, so that the personal becomes an echo of the universal?
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
