This sonnet writing workshop will cover several essentials over the course of three weeks, including characteristics of the traditional sonnet, variations in the different sonnet types, and tips and tricks for making sonnets less overwhelming. In addition to reading a range of sonnets, you will write at least two original traditional sonnets. Limited enrollment.
