What is poetry? How to read poetry? When is National Poetry Month?
What defines or makes a poem a poem? How do you read poetry compared to prose?
Is this work by Maggie Estep a poem?
What about conceptual poetry?
Because I am subbing a lit class today that is moving into poetry, I’ve been thinking about this.
So I am curious how students define poetry, and what they think about the US Poet Laureate as well as California’s, LA’s,
and Ventura County’s.
As we have a few writers coming to Ventura College for Culture in Diversity Festival April 12 and 13, I also thought I’d ask them to find out about Alice Bag, Tony Fletcher, and Richard Blanco.
Celebrate National Poetry Month with us in April at the Culture in Diversity Festival!
