Poet's Toolbox: Metaphor

This class will be a deep dive into metaphors, exploring poetic techniques and genres like the riddle, the ode, anti-metaphor, and more. In the first session, we'll work on four or five exercises, depending on time, designed to get participants to really delve into the metaphorical toolboxes. In the second session, we'll workshop the results of those exercises, honing and crafting our poems.

Instructor: Joshua Gage is an ornery curmudgeon from Cleveland. He is the editor of The Ohio Haiku Anthology, the first collection of haiku by Ohio poets in over twenty years. He currently co-edits the horror poetry journal Otoroshi Journal with his life partner, Lori A Minor. His newest chapbook, blips on a screen, is available on Cuttlefish Books. He is a graduate of the Low Residency MFA Program in Creative Writing at Naropa University. He has a penchant for Pendleton shirts, Ethiopian coffee, and any poem strong enough to yank the breath out of his lungs.
Details: Poet's Toolbox: Metaphor takes place Tuesday, July 12 and Tuesday, July 19 from 6:30-8pm remotely through Zoom.
