Reading Poetry, Writing Prose
What can prose writers learn from close readings of poetry? In this reading-focused course, we'll take an in-depth look at work by six poets, including Layli Long Soldier, Wanda Coleman, and Anne Carson, and explore how their craft decisions might influence and inspire our own writing across genres. Expect lively discussion, opportunities to write in conversation with each author, and the chance to share ideas and creative work in a supportive setting.
