Lunchtime Bite: Writing Long Poems



Danny Silva Soberano




It can be hard to sustain the care required for a poem across many pages or sections but the results can be magnificent. In this short session on long poems, we’ll consider why we might choose to write an extended poem instead of an essay or story, how to pace ideas and ways to bring something substantial to a satisfying conclusion, critically analysing the work of poets who excel in this form.
