Join us for an intimate, 8-week writing workshop this fall.
This workshop focuses on the intersection of prose and poetry: the prose poem or flash fiction. These pieces are tightly woven and so well attended to that both poets and fiction writers would like to claim them.
In this course we will read and write prose poetry, flash fiction and hybrid pieces. Some readings will include work from Ander Monson, Anne Boyer, Lily Hoang, Andrea Lawlor, and many others. Weekly participants will read and discuss prose poems from others, as well as producing and sharing their own work, often with the help of prompts inspired by the texts. The workshop will culminate in a final public reading.
Class Dates: 10/23, 10/30, 11/6, 11/13, 11/20, 11/27, 12/4, 12/11
Final reading will be hosted Friday 12/14, location TBD
