I meant to post this some time ago but life got in the way – it’s a ‘shout out’ with thanks to The Poetry School and Carrie Etter whose course, ‘Historicising the Prose Poem‘ I completed a short while ago.
I’m a complete novice at the genre; confused and perhaps a little annoyed (!) by the perceived view that it’s hard to define. However, through a series of assignments, excellent feedback and the fellow classmates’ work, I began to understand its intriguing complexity and attraction. There were some incredible poets doing the course and I had a wonderful time reading their work and learning from their understanding of Prose Poetry.
Although the Poetry School’s online system may be a little clunky, their support staff are extremely helpful. I enjoyed expert tuition, a great standard of work from fellow poets and superb feedback. I will certainly enrol for another Poetry School some time.
Many thanks for reading this blog page 🙂
