Prairie Gate Literary Festival Craft Talk Workshop with Alan Shapiro: Sentence and Line
Participants are asked to bring their own poems to the workshop. We will examine the poems students bring into class in terms of the sentences they employ and the way, for expressive purposes, those sentences are broken across the line.
Individuals are encouraged to preregister at: https://www4.morris.umn.edu/prairie-gate-literary-festival/register-pglf
