Forms & Features at Compound Yellow: Elegy


All experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop led by Poetry Foundation Library Coordinator Maggie Queeney. In this last month of the year, we turn our attention to the elegy, a poem of mortality, loss, and consolation.

The group will explore a wide variety of elegies. A creative workshop, where participants will be guided through composing original elegies, will conclude the session. To register, please email
