Writing in the Hybrid Zone: Flash Prose and Prose Poems
In this two hour workshop, we will begin with explorations of the flash prose and prose poem genres, including contemporary examples and ideas about the these increasingly popular literary forms. How do you tell one form from the other? Does it matter? What are some of the guidelines and strategies for writers who want to explore the hybrid zone? We will address these and other questions and respond to a few writing prompts and exercises that encourage brevity.
