In this two-day workshop, lead by Shira Dentz, we'll explore the elusive form of the prose poem through reading, discussion, writing experiments, and workshop. We’ll read and discuss prose poems by poets including Francis Ponge, Rosmarie Waldrop, Claudia Rankine, and Charles Simic, and unconventional writing prompts will follow each of our discussions. As prelude to each days class, we will do warm-up sensory/language experiments to flex your bodily sense-perceptions, language, and imagination, and we will conclude on the second day with an extended workhop that will give everyone the chance to refine at least one prose poem they drafted through this workshop.
Note: This is a two-day workshop, on March 9 and 10.
