Forms & Features at Compound Yellow: Diction

07/17/2017 - 6:00pm

All experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop moderated by Poetry Foundation Library Coordinator Maggie Queeney. In July, Forms & Features trains its focus on the diction of poetry, exploring how word choice and vocabulary shapes tone and voice.

The group will explore distinct vocabularies and uses of diction in a wide range of poems. A creative workshop, where participants will be guided through composing original verse, will conclude the session. To register, please email
