Prose/Poetics: Writers on the Line between Prose and Poem

A panel of individuals who will present “creatively critical” (or alternatively, “critically creative”) responses to the tenuous—and not-so tenuous—distinctions that currently determine how we come to define poetry and poetics as distinct from the many varied forms of experimental prose; forms such as the lyric essay, the listicle, aphoristic work, the Iberian crônica, or the fiction works of Renee Gladman, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, and David Markson, for example. Panelists include John Beer, Laura Goldstein, Jennifer Maritza McCauley, Rone Shavers, and Bronwen Tate.
