Friday: Leaping Before You Look: An Introduction to the Lyric Essay by Christopher Citro. In this class we'll read samples of recent lyric essays to gain an acquaintance with this popular new form of the personal essay, then use prompts drawn from those readings to inspire us on our own writing journey.
Saturday: Christopher Citro, winner of the Pushcart Prize, will be reading from his collection of poetry, The Maintenance of the Shimmy-Shammy. Mr. Citro's poetry has been compared to the work of James Tate, utilizing humor and the absurdity of modern life to speak to themes of loss, love, and what it means to be human.
