Two Voices, Two Parts: Working with Prose and Poetry in the Same Work


  • The Skillery 1323 6th Ave N Nashville, TN, 37208 United States

This workshop will be dedicated to manuscripts in which the language alternates between poetry and prose. Over the course of four weeks, we’ll seek to discover how it is that these two kinds of language function together in a single work. What are the elements that make up the poetry, and the prose, of the work? What is its overall structure?  What are its meanings?

Key Takeaways:
Over the course of four sessions, in addition to looking at models of prose-and-poetry within a single text, each writer will present her or his work once, while acting as reader for the other writers.  

Who's it For:
Anyone, especially writers, with an interest in the intersection between poetry and prose.

When does this class meet?
