In a sense symbols and metaphors inhabit the world of poetry. They are the language of the heart rather than the head. However, this doesn't limit them to poetic forms. As story tellers we can enrich and add greater depth to our work by consciously exploring their use. Through discussion, readings and writing exercises we identify the symbols in our stories and work on consciously developing their effectiveness.
