Writing the Prose Poem

Writing the Prose Poem

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 6 weeks; Wednesday, October 25, November 1, 8, 15, 29, & December 6; 6:30-8:45PM Ladue; exact location given upon completed registration 190.00

The prose poem has been described as planting “one foot in prose, the other in poetry, both heels resting precariously on banana peels.” This may be a useful simile, but how do we figure out our footing? Without the line break, where does the boundary between poetry and prose run? This workshop invites prose writers and poets to explore how we might write in sentences and paragraphs to create poetry. Class members will need to bring with them a copy of Great American Prose Poems: From Poe to the Present, edited by David Lehman. Students do not need to bring work to the first class. Taught by Kim Lozano, this 6 week workshop is limited to 8 participants.
