Simple language. Vivid details, selected carefully. Focused subject matter treated in a way that brings in any reader. While Ernest Hemingway may be known for his fiction, his exquisite, unique style is a great tool to inspire compelling poems that connect with readers in their crafty simplicity. This seminar will walk us through how to write like Hemingway in the poetry genre, using key excerpts of some of his most celebrated works to inspire new poems that leap off the page. Join poet Lynne Golodner, who claims Hemingway as her favorite author (despite his controversial misogyny), for the unique voice, tailored word choice, and simplicity that elevates his work and draws in readers in the most unlikely of ways.
