Poetry Workshop Part II with Sarah Blake

6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Let's read some prose poetry and then write whatever we want. We'll read prose poems by Charles Simic, from his book that won the Pulitzer in 1990. Then we'll read more recent prose poems by Sarah Manguso and Matthea Harvey. If you're familiar with the form or not, this should be fun! About the Instructor:  Sarah Blake lives just outside of Philadelphia with her husband and son. In 2013, she received a Literature Fellowship from the NEA for her poetry about Kanye West. Her debut collection of poetry, Mr. West, is forthcoming from Wesleyan University Press later this year.
