Unpacking the Prose Poem [Maya C. Popa]

All Levels | A favorite of the French symbolists and contemporary poets alike, the prose poem is an enigmatic, hybrid creature that wields the techniques of poetry but foregoes its line breaks. The poet James Tate went as far as to suggest that its paragraphs could trick the reader “into glimpsing a little sliver of eternity.” In the first half of the workshop, we will read and study examples by Natalie Diaz, Matthea Harvey, José Olivarez, and Camille T. Dungy. In the second, we will turn to writing exercises that will help us generate and share our own prose poems.
