12:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Explore imaginative and innovative possibilities in writing poetry without line breaks. We will read a range of prose poetry that model poetic elements. Our practice will employ the craft of lineated poetry and traditional narrative, including attention to language, syntax, and sound; rhythmic or imagistic patterning; repetition; precision; compression. The intersection of poetry and prose offers a range of possibilities for style and subject. I encourage a diversity of styles and subject matters, and I encourage you to take risks in your work. We will write together and discuss poetic elements as we practice writing. No previous writing experience is needed.
