Cross-Pollinating: Poetry and Prose

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | Exploring where poetry and prose can boldly intersect and enliven one another in unexpected ways, we will look at examples and write our own prose poems, haibun, lyrical short talks, and other hybrid forms in this fun and generative class. Drawing inspiration from writers such as Anne Carson, Gertrude Stein, Bashō, Elizabeth Bradfield, and Joy Williams, you will leave with a batch of new writing and a bushel of fresh approaches.
