“Which of us, in his ambitious moments, has not dreamed of the miracle of 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, such as Imagism, Surrealism, Objectivism, Projective Verse and the New York School.

Reading by workshop participants Saturday May 28
