Bout-Rimes Short Poetry Workshop-Tue 10/27, 7 pm SLT

This week the Short Poetry Workshop presents the Bout-Rimes. In this popular 17th Century French poetry parlor game, you’ll be given the rhymed endings of a poem, and you’ll create your own poem using those words. We’ll have a selection of poems with rhymed ending words, but feel free to bring any rhymed poem.
