Every month YEW offers new, exciting, and FREE online workshops geared toward young writers 12 to 25 years old. Hosted by Desirée Brown, Ryan Choe, and our talented guest writers, these workshops focus on the development of strong writing skills, building confidence within the craft, overcoming creative blockage, and answering the questions young writers have.
Exploring Sonnets: The New and The Old
with Ryan Choe
An exploration of the sonnet and how it has developed over time. In this workshop, we will read sonnets from various poets to better understand how they use the 14-line structure, as well as other restrictions, to suit their poem’s needs. Join us for an open discussion on structure, variation, and evolution in poetry!
