Write a Story in Verse with Terry Farish

Maybe you like verse novels or poems and you’d like to try your hand at writing in the spare lines of verse.  We’ll create verses to build a story with the help of writing games for inspiration.  One game is with archetypal symbols, such as a rose, the sun, the number three, the color blue.  We’ll imagine how images you choose can help to tell stories. Another is an “I wish……” free write to understand our characters. We’ll read aloud to see if that helps us to fine tune the lines.  And we’ll create a writers’ community in which we listen to and respond to each other. If you have a favorite verse novel, bring a passage from it
