If it’s a question of permissions–this Caroline Bergvall poem answers: ‘Try anything!” Perhaps we should think of poetry as extreme freedom within poetic constraints.

Carol Clark Williams will be teaching and inviting your responses to experimental by Bergvall, Kearney and Morgan– also other imposed constraints like redaction poetry (or black-out poetry) and Oulipo.. As always, the workshop will begin with a discussion of how poetry differs from prose, and we will prove that through examples and writing prompts.
