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 look at the art of the lyric essay and think through what makes a poet’s prose successful; establishing structure and voice. Readings will include: Cathy Park Hong, Fady Joudah, Sarah Manguso, Anne Carson, Rainer Maria Rilke, Eula Biss, Hanif Abdurraqib Willis, Lucia Perillo and Ocean Vuong.
