Explore the lyric essay and come up with your own definition of what constitutes a lyric essay and learn what this form can offer. The first half of the class you’ll immerse yourself in the lyric essay, reading a variety of texts that have fallen into this category, all the while doing writing exercises that will aid us in the construction of our own work. During the second half of class, participants will workshop the essays they’ve been constructing and attempt to come to some conclusion as to why this form has burgeoned in recent years.    

Jennifer Denrow is the author of California (Four Ways Books) Her chapbooks include How We Know it is That and From California, On. She holds a PhD in English from the University of Denver and is the recipient of a fellowship in Creative Writing from the National Endowment for the Arts.
