Masterclass: Prose Poetry

Zoom Masterclass with Maya C. Popa
Tutor
  • Maya C. Popa
Date Tuesday August 23rd 2022, 19:00 - 21:00 BST
Location Online

A favourite of French symbolists and contemporary poets alike: the prose poem is an enigmatic, hybrid creature that wields the techniques of poetry but foregoes its line breaks. The poet James Tate went as far as to suggest that its paragraphs could trick the reader “into glimpsing a little sliver of eternity.”

Taught by poet Maya C. Popa, in the first part of this you’ll read and study examples of prose poetry by Natalie Diaz, José Olivarez, Aracelis Girmay, and others. In the second, Maya will lead you through writing exercises to help you generate your own prose poem.

The Masterclass will be delivered via Zoom webinar (19:00-21:00), so you can take the session at your own pace, without the pressure of having your video or camera on. Sessions are also recorded so if you are unable to attend live, you will have access to the recording for a month afterwards.

"These zoom opportunities are really helping to open my world and keep me inspired to write."

"Arvon at Home creates a model to participate in inspirational tutoring for writers, at a distance. The feeling of attending to my writing life in an excellent fashion, and still having a half-day for my work and caring responsibilities at home, felt like a good balance."
— Masterclass participant
"It was an absolutely brilliant session and very very useful. And it made me realise how much I’ve missed this kind of workshop because of having children and family that I can’t leave. Now we’re all in the same boat the online stuff is truly transformative."
