Which of us, in his ambitious moments, has not dreamed of the miracle of a poetic prose? (Baudelaire) The prose poem is a border genre particularly suited to tracing/guiding consciousness. This workshop will explore poetic possibilities while writing five works in prose and also reading poetry and poetics from some 20th century poetic movements—Imagism, Surrealism, Objectivism, Projective Verse and the New York School.

Barbara Henning is the author of three novels and seven books of poetry. Her most recent books are Cities & Memory, Thirty Miles from Rosebud and Looking Up Harryette Mullen. She teaches at Naropa University and Long Island University in Brooklyn.
