“You Can Write Poetry!” 
with Maxwell Corydon Wheat Jr

Monday, January 31 · 7:00pm - 10:00pm
What You Have Never Heard in a Poetry Writing Class

But will hear in Max Wheat’s Farmingdale Public Schools’ Continuing Education course, “You Can Write Poetry!” The two-hour, nine week sessions begin at the Farmingdale Senior High School at 7 pm, Mon., Jan. 31. “Train Coupling,” “Bland Spaces” “Abscission Layer Hang-ons are some of the writing techniques Wheat will present. For an idea of an Abscission Layer Hang-on, note oak t...rees with bunches of dried, crinkly brown leaves hanging on through the winter. What help does this have for effective writing? Register for the course and learn how. Also, lear how to give a single noun huge responsibility for creating powerful effect. Think of similes and metaphors as costuming the language. Integrate touches of surrealism to give your poem jolts of power. This and abundant use of personification are empowering contemporary poetry. Appreciate the significance of Plain Language. We begin Monday with America’s great practitioner of Plain Language (which often becomes Plainsong) of Wendell Berry.
