Delve into the belly of poetry with acclaimed Secwepemc poet, rancher and professional breeder of quarterhorses, Garry Gottfriedson. Working as a group, as well as, individually, participants will be guided through the process of sharpening and shaping their poems. Explore the useful art of imagery in poetry and play with the imagination using images to construct enticing metaphors. Poets will play on the sound within words, vowels, and consonants critical to poetic expression. In addition, we will explore how sounds create rhythm in poetry to channel tone and enhance other elements within poetry.
