The Best of Both Worlds: Welcoming Poetry and Poetic Elements into Your Prose—A Workshop with Jasminne Mendez

When: Thu., May 6, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

"One of the greatest pieces of advice I received from a mentor once was: 'You don’t have to give up being a poet to write prose,'" author Jasminne Mendez says. In this generative writing workshop, students will explore the lyric and braided essay form and how poetry and poetic elements can be integrated into the narrative of a piece in creative and interesting ways. Participants will look at examples of essays that incorporate poetic strategies such as repetition, alliteration, imagery and even rhyme, and use prompts to create their own lyric or braided essays.
