Hybrid Prose: The Final Reading

  • neushop 15 Southeast 2nd Avenue Miami, FL, 33131 United States (map)

Join us Friday, August 3rd as we celebrate the culmination of Hybrid Prose: A Writing Workshop led by poet Caroline Cabrera.



Lyric Essays are prose in an expansive form, combining elements of poetry, essay, memoir and research. They are hybrid by definition, pilfering techniques from across the genres. They allow for anything, and in doing so permit writers to hone their sensibility, voice and overall craft. 

Over the course of eight sessions, 13 workshop participants have read and discussed lyric essays from other writers, while developing a long-form lyric essay or lyric essay cycle, through the aid of weekly writing prompts. The culmination celebrates their new insight and hard work.

Come hear them share their hybrid prose, sip complimentary beverages, and browse Neushop's collection of beautiful and functional designs.

Neushop is born to pursue design that addresses real life. The kind of design that is unafraid of everyday aesthetics, and learns from what worked before. The kind of thinking unconcerned with originality. Neushop balances convention and innovation to instill ordinary experiences with the pleasure that only comes from good design. Neushop is a place for these ideas. It’s a store where they are reflected on physical objects; a design office that engages anything from packaging to urbanism; a forum where everyone is invited to exchange ideas and collaborate. In this space, Neushop aspires to show that a city perceived as superficial has been infiltrated by serious design thinking.
