Jeff Friedman: Prose Poem / Micro Story
In this writing workshop, you’ll explore the prose poem and micro story and the interplay between these two genres. You’ll write poems in paragraphs—poems that might resemble postcards or emails— and stories that might only be the length of a paragraph, stories that strike with a lyric intensity. You’ll create new work that tests the boundaries between poem and story..
This Zoom event is free and open to the public, but we request that you RSVP for this conversation with Jeff: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0qc-uvpzwtHtGKYcqycZ_nCGA2ah13p59I
