I am teaching an all-level poetry workshop at Hugo House on Sunday, May 6th from 1 to 4 pm.
What are your obsessions? How do they drive your writing? Using prose poems as our chosen form, we will generate new work. We will read work from contemporary poets of color known for prose poetry, including Yasmin Belkhyr and Khadijah Queen, among others. We will use ekphrasis to generate our own prose poems, drawing from a well of art, both visual and musical. We will expand the prose poem form, generate new work, and discuss redrafting techniques.
