Living Room, Tuesday 3.20.12 Prose. Poetry. Prose poetry?

March 13, 2012

Prose. Poetry. Prose poetry? While the debate where one ends and the other begins is destined to rage into eternity, few would argue that prose often appeals to our sense of language, and poetry often retains a narrative edge. We’ll look at and discuss the distinctions, the usefulness of the distinctions and explore the in-betweens. SPLABers are encouraged to bring their own favorite examples of prose poetry, with a reason for that designation. Graham Issac is your guide.

Writers of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels gather Tuesdays at 7P to read new work, the work of someone else or to just be in the engaging company of other writers. Your donation of $5 helps SPLAB continue our programming. Please bring 8 copies of the work you plan to read. If you do not bring copies, they are available for 10c.

Living Room happens @ SPLAB in the Cultural Corner at 3651 S. Edmunds. (Look for the SPLAB sign on the wall and come inside.) We’re 2 blocks from the Columbia City Link Light Rail Station. (Parking is available on the school grounds.)
