What you can learn.

  • Study powerful prose poems and discover the opportunities in this style of writing
  • Learn about the roots of this two-hundred year old genre
  • Develop poetic tools like music and structure and apply them to prose writing
  • Enhance your poetry and your prose by working with both kinds of writing

About this course:

This class explores the boundaries of poetry as a genre. We focus on story, structure, music, and imagination to construct and discuss poems. We attempt to discover the difference between a prose poem and a short-short. You learn vocabulary to discuss both fiction and poetry through reading. The intersection of poetry and prose offers a range of possibilities for style and subject. What elements are essential to a poem? To a story?
