KFB POETRY LAB WELCOMES
“Graham’s poems are sparely worded but full of evocative images that vividly convey a wide range of emotion, from passion to grief.” —CBC Books
“Master of the short poem.” – Kirby
THE SHORT POEM WORKSHOP
Compression, image, metaphor, voice—there are many routes to the short poem. How does it accomplish so much in a little arena?
In this workshop we’ll explore the elements behind the short poem. Through examples, exercises, discussion and reflection, we’ll explore the landscape of the small. The opportunity to read your drafts will be part of the process.
This workshop is suitable for all levels—from beginner to advanced.
Seize this rare opportunity to learn with CATHERINE GRAHAM in our intimate Salon Space.
