Prose poetry is having a renaissance. While prose poetry is written in the mode of prose and uses a variety of poetic techniques including fragmentation, compression, repetition, and rhyme, there is so much more to it. This workshop is for writers who are interested in extending their art: poets who want to write in prose and prose fiction writers who want to experiment with poetry.It is also useful for writers who have written prose poems and would like to hone their craft.

Cassandra Atherton is an award-winning writer and international scholar of prose poetry. She was a Visiting Scholar in English at Harvard University in 2016 and a Visiting Fellow in Literature at Sophia University, Tokyo, in 2014.
