Because of its brevity, energy, and limitless possibilities, the prose poem form offers an exciting departure for writers of any genre. In this workshop, we’ll look at a variety of published prose poems. Generative prompts will ask you to consider: How will my poems be liberated when unconstrained by lineation?
