The Prose Poem FILLING

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

The prose poem, as its title indicates, is a strange animal all its own. Borrowing from each form, a successful prose poem reads as if it could have been written no other way. In this workshop, we’ll learn by doing and discussion. Using handouts, we’ll look at some examples of successful prose poems, and try to figure out why they work. Then, using writing prompts, we’ll try to write some, noting some of the difficulties they raise and hoping for some small successes too. This workshop promises to be a lot of fun, and informative as well. It raises more questions than it answers.

Please bring writing materials, paper and pen preferred.
