taught by Jennifer Richter

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?

Jennifer Richter’s new poetry collection, No Acute Distress, was named a Crab Orchard Series in Poetry Editor’s Selection; her first book, Threshold, was chosen by Natasha Trethewey for the Crab Orchard Series in Poetry and by Robert Pinsky as an Oregon Book Award Finalist. Richter has been awarded an Oregon Literary Fellowship and currently teaches in Oregon State University’s MFA Program.
