Hermit Crab Forms for Poets & Prosers [Dilruba Ahmed]
All Levels | Calling all poets & prose writers! This mixed-genre class will explore “hermit crab” forms for our poems, prose, and prose poems. Just as a hermit crab adapts to various “homes,” we’ll write about our experiences using the language and architecture of borrowed forms: instruction manuals, encyclopedia entries, multiple choice questionnaires, historical timelines, or horoscopes. How can borrowed structures help us to reveal our emotional truths? This generative workshop is open to all.
