The Element of Surprise with Andrés Cerpa
March 16 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm$100
Join Andrés Cerpa for a two hour Master Class on introducing the element of surprise in poetry.
Often poets strive to build cohesion in their work. Yet as readers surprise and discordant notes offer us wild moments of joy and inspire reflection.
Students will submit a packet of three poems and will receive written feedback as well as example poems to reach outward into the unknown, to surprise both themselves and the reader.
Students must apply for this course. Send three poems to [email protected] & Andrés will select the class based on the work presented.
Andrés Cerpa is the author of Bicycle in a Ransacked City: An Elegy, forthcoming from Alice James Books (January 2019). A recipient of fellowships from the McDowell Colony and Canto Mundo, his poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Poem-a-Day, The Kenyon Review, Gulf Coast, West Branch, Foundry Journal, Wildness, + elsewhere. He is the Assistant Poetry Editor of Epiphany Magazine.
