Exploring the Surreal & Political in Prose Poetry

In this workshop, we will explore both the surreal and the political prose poetry. We'll look at writers such as Ada Limón, Harryette Mullen, Ray Gonzalez, and Marosa di Giorgio. The instructor will share his prompts and sample prose poems to gain insight into the improvisation, drafting, and revision processes. In this four-week course, students are encouraged (optionally) to share their work with the instructor via email for weekly feedback.
