Workshops & Discussions

Forms & Features at Compound Yellow: The Line


All experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop led by Poetry Foundation Library Coordinator Maggie Queeney. In March, we explore the line, an organizing feature that shapes a poem’s sound and meaning.

The group will explore the aspects and effects of the line in a wide variety of poems. A creative workshop, where participants will be guided through composing original poems that explore various line lengths and shapes, will conclude the session. To register, please email
