Exploring Experimental Poetry

In this collaborative group, we will discuss the diction, craft elements, pros, cons, emotional ideas, and literary benefits of experimental writing in poetry. This includes concrete poetry, poetry combined with visual art, language promoted as image, electronic poetry, and more. Participants in this event will also be encouraged to write and share their own experimental poems as we come together to discuss the best approach for success in this particular field of poetry.
