4-Week Prose Poetry Course w/Jose Hernandez Diaz (October)

We’ll also read some famous, award-winning prose poets, including Charles Simic, Marosa di Giorgio, and James Tate, and think about what they’re doing on the page. Also, through weeklly writing exercises, we will experiment with various literary techniques, and hopefully produce some work of our own.
