Ted Kooser Poetry Writing Workshop at Hill-Stead

As part of Hill-Stead’s Sunken Garden Poetry Festival, United States Poet Laureate (2004-2006) and 2005 Pulitzer Prize winner Ted Kooser will lead a writing workshop entitled: Fine-Tuning Metaphor; Getting the Most from a Literary Comparison. Kooser is considered a master of metaphor, and in this workshop, he will demonstrate his process for making certain that every element of the metaphorical comparison contributes to its effect.
