About the Event

Writing the Forms of Poetry

A remote 8-week course presented in a workshop format that introduces participates to different forms of poetry and approaches to writing those different forms, such as free verse, prose poems, haiku and tanka, sonnets and blank verse, couplets, lyrics and lyrical forms.

Participants will leave the course with a better understanding of different forms of poetry, approaches to writing in those forms, and a collection of 6 to 8 poems.

No texts though many poets, poems, examples, sites and sources will be shared in the course.


This workshop will meet every Thursday, beginning Feb. 18, 2021, at the same time for 8 consecutive weeks (ending April 8). 


Class size is limited to 20 students so that all participants get some personal attention.

HND Value Statement

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this {article, book, exhibition, film, program, database, report, Web resource}, do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or Humanities North Dakota.

However, in an increasingly polarized world, we at Humanities North Dakota believe that being open-minded is necessary to thinking critically and rationally.

Therefore, our programs and classes reflect our own open-mindedness in the inquiry, seeking, and acquiring of scholars to speak at our events and teach classes for our Public University.

To that end, we encourage our participants to join us in stepping outside our comfort zones and considering other perspectives and ideas by being open-minded while attending HND events featuring scholars who hold a variety of opinions, some being opposite of our own held beliefs.
