Syntax: The Voice and Pulse of the Poem--Advanced Poetry Workshop with Kristine Uyeda: Mahany/Meininger Community Center, Room #1, 3500 Marais, Royal Oak, 48073, Thursdays, October 9, 16, 23, 30, November 6 & 13, 7pm - 9pm. Syntax is responsible for what we understand as a poet's distinct voice, it is the engine that drives the line in a poem, and creates the textures and nuances that make poems memorable to readers. Each week, we’ll briefly discuss model poems or an essay on syntax before workshopping participants’ poems with an eye toward syntax although our discussions will not be limited to that topic. Required text: The Art of Syntax by Ellen Bryant Voigt (Graywolf Press). Limited to 8 poets. Kristine Uyeda is a Kundiman fellow whose poems, micro fiction, and essays have appeared in a number of journals and anthologies. She holds an MFA in Poetry from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
