Sassy Rhymes for Desperate Times
**Please note all times are listed in EST**

This workshop will focus on how writers of both poetry and prose can use rhyme and other sound devices (alliteration, anaphora, refrain) to boost the power and effectiveness of literary writing. How do literary sound devices shape the utterances we want our readers to hear and our audiences to remember? Participants will both read and write during the two sessions.

Allison Joseph is a writer, poet, and professor who lives in Carbondale, Illinois, where she is part of the faculty of Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Her award-winning books include Confessions of a Barefaced Woman and Lexicon. She was named Illinois Writer of the Year for 2022 by the Illinois Association of Teacher of English.
