Last Call for Poets’ Projects Signups!

Poets’ Projects begins tomorrow! Want to take a class in a book-filled back room of Ada? Want to work on your poems in a supporting yet challenging environment? Want to make some new writer friends? Then register today to secure your spot!

This six-week workshop is for poets and/or for any writers looking to play on the page. What happens when poets write in other genres? How does writing non-poems help make our poems better? In this class, we’ll read excerpts from work by poets writing non-poems: Daniil Kharms’ notebooks, Mary Ruefle’s lectures, Anne Carson’s play Antigonick, Jon Cotner and Andy Fitch’s Walk and Talk, and more. We’ll explore how they bring their poetic sensibilities to bear outside traditional forms of poetry, and through a series of experiments, we’ll practice doing the same, writing a lecture, a short play, three letters, and a notebook. In class, we’ll discuss the readings and share our experiments. If, by accident, poems result from our experiments in prose, they will not be turned away!
