Whether humorous, intense, dramatic, or morbid, poets use persona as the speaker in poetry to bring the reader into an imagined experience–a new take on a story or an entirely different world. Using techniques borrowed from fiction writing and acting to open the imagination, this workshop will help participants develop a strong sense of the imagined “self” in poetic characters. Participants will leave the workshop with at least six new drafts.
