Persona Poems: The Truth Behind the Mask - A Writing Workshop
Greek actors wore masks to be seen from afar. Today a persona is a speaker who talks or tells a story. In this workshop we will study famous persona poems by Browning, Hughes, Machan, Shakespeare, Yeats; use workshop writing prompts to build a character and story; and finally, create a unique persona poem – art from our imagination as well as our life experience. The workshop facilitator, Jim Kelleher, has an MFA and teaches lit and comp at Northwestern CT Community College.
