*Maximum 8 students. Attendees who are returning students of Third Culture/Third Genre: Between Poetry and Prose*, please contact Tiffany Tran Le at tle@aaww.org for a discount.

Why you should take this class: Because you’re a third culture kid who writes third genre* work: You have good sense when it comes to knowing whether what you’re writing is better off as a poem or when it ought to be prose. But what do you do when it’s both? Together, we will explore the art of the lyric essay, a poet’s prose.

Class Description: We will share and workshop original lyric essays (written by you!) and think through what makes a poet’s prose successful; establishing structure and voice. Bring your work to share!
