Exploring the Surreal and the Strange in Prose Poetry

In this workshop, writers will be exposed to surreal and strange prose poems by established masters. We will take a look at writers such as James Tate, Marosa di Giorgio, Sabrina Orah Mark, Ray Gonzalez, and more. Once we have exposure to some of the great surreal prose poets of our age, the instructor will share his own unique prompts and sample prose poems written to the same prompts, so students can gain insight into the improvisation and editing process.
