Workshops & Discussions

Forms & Features at Compound Yellow: Persona


All experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop led by Poetry Foundation Library Coordinator Maggie Queeney. In January, we explore persona, a dramatic, mask-like character the poet creates, assumes, and speaks through.

The group will explore personae in a wide range of poems. A creative workshop, where participants will be guided through composing original persona poems, will conclude the session. To register, please email
