Sestinas are the short stories of the poetry world—so this class is perfect for fiction writers as well as poets. Take a crack at a sestina or learn how to write better ones in this fun and informative class. Sestinas often fail because writers don’t pair the form with the right sized story/idea, so we’ll begin with brainstorming exercises. We’ll study how a few good sestinas work, and begin to draft our own. The instructor will offer lots of tips and insights on how to work in this form. While practicing sestinas, you’ll build your literary muscles with repetition, diction, storytelling, pacing, description, and more.
