Instructor: Drury W 12:20 – 3:10pm
In our workshops and our reading, we’ll concentrate on poems that invent, corrupt, experiment with, or otherwise transform traditional forms and modes in both verse and prose. The instructor will encourage students to develop ongoing projects and to launch new ones. Tyehimba Jess, the Elliston Poet for 2020, will join us for one of our workshop sessions in March. We’ll read and discuss his poetry collections leadbelly (2005) and Olio (2016), winner of the Pulitzer Prize.
