But is it poetry? — writing poetry without lines
Thursday 14 July 2022, 7.30 p.m. UK time
At Cinnamon we love genres that slip between categories and challenge expectations. Prose poetry is a constantly contested area of writing and also one that is rich with possibilities for both narrative and lyricism. Join accomplished prose poets, Jan Fortune (Stale Bread & Miracles), Maria Jastrzębska (The True Story of Cowboy Hat and Ingénue), Jane Monson (The Shared Surface, This Line is Not for Turning and forthcoming: The Chalk Butterfly) to chew over definitions and ambiguities and to hear some fine examples of the form.
