Truth, Lies, & Beauty Some of the best storytellers are the best liars. We'll look at strategies used in short stories and fiction excerpts and look at how poems can use the same methods. Each poem can extend a truth or reveal a lie. Poets can decide how to use truths, lies, and the gray areas between them. We'll figure out how to use those possibilities to strengthen poems. We will look at fiction excerpts from Junot Diaz, Toni Morrison, and other writers as a basis for our poems.
