ONSITE: The Prose Poem

Explore the possibilities of the prose poem. Each week, we'll read and discuss examples of prose poems (historic and contemporary), then use these conversations to inspire us as we write prose poems of our own.

Special Notes

  • Class time will focus on discussion of shared readings and our creative process. We will try to make time for writing exercises during class time, but students who wish to produce completed drafts should expect to continue writing outside of the scheduled class time. Students may want to plan for additional reading outside of class time, but it will not be a requirement. Shared readings will be provided by the instructor. All materials will be provided, though some students may wish to bring a notebook and favorite writing instrument.

    Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.

    This is an On-site course. Students must follow current Covid-19 protocols, as outlined on our website. On-site courses do not come with studio access outside of class time. Paid open studio access is available through our Studio Access Program. Please visit for more information.
