Workshops & Discussions

Forms & Features at Compound Yellow: Prose Poetry


All experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop moderated by Poetry Foundation Library Coordinator Maggie Queeney. In this session, we focus on the prose poem, a hybrid composition that takes the appearance of prose while assuming the devices, and name, of poetry.

The group will explore a wide variety of prose poems. A creative workshop, where participants will be guided through composing original prose poems, will conclude the session. To register, please email [email protected].
