Anaphora. Rhyme. Epistrophe. Alliteration. Assonance. Consonance. These are the six writerly tools for creating repetition—of words, phrases, vowels, and consonants—in our verse and prose. We will study poems and lyrical prose that demonstrate the effects of repetition—reinforcement, emphasis, atmosphere, emotion, tension, and, of course, music—and practice these sound devices while generating our own pieces.
NOTE: The replay video will be emailed to all registrants within 24 hours post-session to view at your convenience if you can’t attend “live.”
