Poetic devises aren’t just for poets. Elements of poetry, such as metaphor, simile, and rhythm enable writers to add complex layers to the sentence structure, thereby enhancing language for the reader. In this workshop, Tayve will discuss poetic techniques and their relation to narrative poetry, flash fiction, and prose poetry. She will work with these craft elements to help participants with their character development, enhancing sensory detail, and varying sentence and paragraph structure.
Tayve Neese’s work has appeared in literary journals including Fourteen Hills, The Paris Review, MiPOesias, Fifth Wednesday Journal, and she is the author of the book, Blood to Fruit. She is also the Executive Editor of Trio House Press, an independent press publishing distinct and innovative voices of emerging and established American poets. Neese has taught poetry at the University of North Florida. She serves on the Advisory Board for the Concord Poetry Center in Concord, Massachusetts, and currently resides in Colorado.
