ONLINE Skeltonics: 16th Century Rap!

Member Price: $30
Non-member Price: $40

In the 16th century poet John Skelton invented the “Tumbling Verse” form Skeltonics. Its deliberately irregular meter of short, asymmetrical, rhyming lines produces the rapid-fire tumbling effect we see in today’s rap style. Like modern rap, the topics of your great great granddaddy’s rap can be anything from gods to gangstas.

This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web 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.
