      Topic: The Fantastic Mongrel: Experiments in Prose Poetry

      Prose poetry is far more than just verse without line breaks. Borrowing from a variety of forms and genres, including questionnaires, how to books, conver­sations, dream narratives, and art installations like those of Joseph Cornell, these little blocks, patches, scraps, chunks, fragments—whatever you want to call them—are  tiny boxes that can contain big things. We will consider various strategies for composing prose poetry, as well as the ways in which experimentation with the prose poem form can bring innovation to writing of all lengths and genres. 

       

      Bring 18 - 20 copies of a poem (2 page limit) you want critiqued.*$5 - $10 donation appreciated.
