Join Nance Van Winckel, renowned poet and prose stylist, for an exploration of prose poems, flash fictions, and short lyric essays, discussing distinctions of each. Nance says: “In the morning session, we’ll try our hands at some prose of our own, invigorating our sentences, shaping the syntax, and allowing for surprising turns. For the afternoon, and employing some of the language generated in the morning session, we’ll experiment with how words might expand in meaning when ‘applied’ to a surface besides the page–On a tree pod, a shoe, or a sauce pan, for instance. What can a context other than “the page” do to, or with, your words?
