Writing prose poetry is exciting, fun, and challenging. Prose poems vary a great deal. They display an abundance of different narrators and approaches: the one common element is that sentences, rather than free or metrical verse, drive the writing. In this six-week class, you will sample diverse exercises based on accessible, yet artistically challenging and satisfying, models. In the optional weekly, unrecorded live discussions, we will discuss the week’s exercise and explore the model’s basic technical issues. All welcome: poets, writers who have never written a poem, or anyone in between.
This class is open to new, current, and returning Writers Studio students.
