CREW 211 – Writing Free Verse Lyric
In a world of memes, instapoems and empowerment advertising, how can we write meaningful words that keep it real? Poets do the work to keep language connected to our experiences and truths. CREW 211 will teach any writer to craft sentences and images that honour emotional honesty, precision and moral complexity. We will read the work of “The Next Wave” of Canadian poets and discuss the many ways they challenge our habits of thinking and feeling. Community learners are welcome through VIU’s Love of Learning program. For further information contact Sonnet.L’Abbe@viu.ca.
