Limericks, doggerel, sonnets, slam, blank verse, cinquain, nursery, nonsense, epic... what exactly is a poem? And to rhyme, or not to rhyme, that is the question.

This course will look at a wide range of poems. Students will identify which genres they enjoy most and create a portfolio of their own work.
