Let’s take a brief look at the origins and history, some of the forms (Italian, Spenserian, and English primarily), a few classic examples (along with some of my own), and have discussion considering the importance of the shifts. There will also be time for writing and sharing.

Chris Wise is a poet and novelist. He has been published in various poetry anthologies and small press literary magazines such as Nerve Cowboy, Blue Collar Review, and Road Not Taken. He has been a featured author in Cowboys and Indians Magazine, and has made several radio appearances on KPFT’s Living Art, KH-TV.com, and the Word Around Town Poetry Tour. Colliding With Orion (a collection of poetry, short stories and essays on craft) from Absey & Co. will be released in the fall of 2016. He is a veteran of the US Army, earned an English degree from Texas A&M, and currently lives in Houston, TX.
