Join us at the Lodi Whittier Library for a Prose Poetry Journey!

You start with a detour before you’ve begun, already turning up a mountain pass, guard rails missing, yet you proceed in this journey toward creating the prose poem.

This creative writing workshop offers a road map for helping participants find their way in creating original prose poetry. The mini-course begins with definitions and the inherent paradox of the genre and moves into models, techniques, resources, with greatest emphasis on workshop writing. Your guide will be writer/poet Nancy A. Dafoe.

Dafoe, a nationally awarded writer in poetry, prose poetry, and fiction, has taught at the high school and college level. She has published ten books, including two books of poetry. https://www.nancydafoebooks.com/

The Workshop will take place over zoom on Saturday, February 20th from 11:00 – 1:00.

On the next Saturday February 27th, 11:00-1:00, there will be a conclusion to the workshop and an open reading for participants, including a reading by Ms. Dafoe of her own work.
