The Prose Poem with Cheryl Quimba

The Prose Poem with Cheryl Quimba

What possibilities lie in the creation of poems that defy the line? Prose poems operate in that fertile and porous territory between verse and prose. They offer us the freedom to make full use of the sentence without regard to line breaks, while using the traits like metaphors, symbols, images, sound play, and unconventional syntax that we celebrate in poetry. In this workshop we will encounter a selection of prose poems in a range of styles and approaches, and we will write and share our own prose poem creations.
