Invented Forms

**Due to a power outage in Downtown Long Beach this event was postponed/rescheduled for Thursday, July 23rd. Please note that moves back our monthly workshop to the 5th Thursday, July 30th. Thank for your understanding. Hope to see you at The Poetry Lab!**


The Poetry Lab is excited you bring you a new series called Summer Sessions! These carefully crafted sessions will celebrate different styles of writing with specially designed workbooks available for purchase. These workbooks have been made exclusively for The Poetry Lab--collect and work through them all! 


The Bop, Paradelle, and Contrapuntal...these are just a few of the invented forms will be discussing in this Summer Session! 

 Turn to the Invented Forms workbook for even more information on new & invented forms.

Please come ready to write!

Invented Forms workbooks will be available for $8.


You won't need to buy the workbook to participate in this session, but it is recommended for further study on the topic. Plus, it's a Poetry Lab fundraiser--all proceeds will go toward our table at the bookfair at AWP 2016 in Los Angeles next spring. 

The workbooks feature extended material on the form, additional writing prompts and sample poems. They will expand on the topics covered during our sessions and give you an opportunity to delve deeper in your own time. 


Everyone welcome!
