Cross-Pollination: Poets Writing Memoir

This multigenre workshop will look at the work of contemporary poets who also write memoir, such as Joy Harjo, E. J. Koh, Camille Dungy, and Mark Doty to name a few. How does the intimacy and imagery of poetry influence prose and what can blossom from poets wandering into the field of creative nonfiction? Through several generative writing exercises, we will expand existing poems into longer prose (possibly hybrid forms) and explore the opportunities and potential obstacles in writing effectively across genres.
