Description: The use of rhyme, its forms and variations.
Objectives: By the end of the workshop participants will be more knowledgeable and comfortable in the use of rhyme and its consequences.
In this workshop we will be discussing and writing various forms of rhyme. We'll hope to cover such things as-
half-rhyme and partial rhyme
strong and weak rhymes
single, double and triple rhymes
stretching for rhyme
1. We will start with a discussion on the value of rhyme, questioning its use at all. We will not get into a fight about it! We'll just present our own personal perspectives.
2. Participate in rhyme exercises and/or submit examples of forms you want to explore which everyone will critique.
Please contact me by PM to join. If you can't commit to the whole rhyme workshop you will be allowed to post examples/experiments if you contribute to the discussion on the workshop page and critique at least 3 other workshop postings for each of your own. Contact me by PM so that I can add you as a workshop participant.
I also ask of each participant, whether casual or committed that you check all the postings and give critique. By implementing this casual approach I am committing to being very hands on and I won't be able to do it alone. For everything you post make sure you give critiques to every other posting, please. Bookmark this page and the workshop postings page-
and don't forget to select 'Rhyme- use, variations and forms.' in the workshop dropdown when you submit content!
Finally, this is Shark Pool, so all critique should be incisive and straight to the point, no room for amelioration or consideration of the poet's delicacy.
Have fun. That's an order.
