Imagism and poetry

It's half term so no poetry class this week.  Last week we looked at 'imagists' like Ezra Pound who wrote some 'sparing' poetry a little like Haiku but who wrote how things were rather than use simile and metaphor. Check out the links to find out more.

We had a workshop of our Haiku. Everyone produced good verse, very unique ways of looking at the world. Mine was the last to be looked at but we ran out of time to finish so the idea is to look at it again next time, but first comments from the tutor was very positive.

Tonight I have my first 'online chat' with The Poetry School Villanelle Studio.  Wish me luck!
