September 17th from 7AM to 8:30 E.T. via ZOOM
Workshop Duration: 90 minutes
In this class, we will look at contemporary poets writing the strange and the surreal, such as Ray Gonzalez, Marosa di Giorgio, Eduardo C. Corral, James Tate, and others. What is gained from writing the surreal? What is discovered along the way? Next, guided by our instructor’s surreal prompts on dreams, nightmares, aliens, space, etc., we will write our own poems and prose poems and submit them to literary journals.
