Prose Poetry: Remake It, Don’t Break It: A Generative Workshop with Ruben Quesada (via Zoom)

July 24, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Explore imaginative and innovative possibilities in writing poetry without line breaks. We will read a range of prose poetry that model poetic elements. Our practice will employ the craft of lineated poetry and traditional narrative, including attention to language, syntax, and sound; rhythmic or imagistic patterning; repetition; precision; compression. The intersection of poetry and prose offers a range of possibilities for style and subject. I encourage a diversity of styles and subject matters, and I encourage you to take risks in your work. We will write together and discuss poetic elements as we practice writing. No previous writing experience is needed.

NB: This workshop will be taught via Zoom. Class is capped at 17 students. The Zoom link will be sent at the time of registration and again in the days before class. Please check spam filter and email [email protected] if you have not received the link.
Scholarship information will be availableOn April 15th and applications will be due on May 15th.
Please make sure to read our course policies page regarding workshop conduct and logistics before registering for any class at HVWC.
