Writing Hybrid Forms: The Prose Poem

February 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- Free - $65

Ever feel like you’ve penned-in one of your poems or stories by insisting it stay true to its form? In this class, we’ll open up our poems and stories by introducing them to the other form. In doing so, we’ll create the hybrid known as a prose poem. We’ll begin by looking at prose-poems by contemporary writers Claudia Rankine, Stuart Dybek, Lydia Davis, and James Tate, then practice prose-poem techniques: spading up deep images, quickly building a character, and letting image and character nourish and play off each other. Afterwards, we’ll write and share our own prose-poems.
