Intensive Prose Poem Workshop this Weekend

This weekend, March 9–10, I’m teaching an intensive workshop on the prose poem at The Word Barn, 66 Newfields Road, in Exeter, NH. More info and registration here.

Space is limited, and registration is open until Friday, March 8–there are just three spots left!

In this two-day workshop, 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 day’s 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.
