The workshop includes a guided nature walk with museum horticulturist Jan Busco.Using celebrated examples of both traditional and contemporary poetry, we’ll discuss techniques such as metaphor, imagery, sound and allusion as well as introducing basic techniques for creating musicality within a poem.
