"What can prose writers learn from poetry?" by LISA ALVAREZ

What can prose writers learn from poetry? Often, too often, students focus primarily on their chosen genre whether through individual choice and/or institutional pressure. This talk will examine how developing a close relationship to poetry can teach prose writers about line, imagery, form and content in ways that invigorate and inspire. As Edward Hirsch has suggested, "fiction goes to poetry for the intensity of its use of language," as part of the making literature, "something that lasts in language."

“AMERICAN LETTERS: works on paper” by giovanni singleton

Sound as in improvisation acts upon images and text giving rise to harmonious constructions of silence. It comes down to the desire for liberation through exploring what words, in their essence, can do. The behearer and the beholder approach the world with an attitude of longing. The page is a canvas, a field, a mediation between human nature and the natural world. Writing occurs on and with trees. Knock on wood. What is spoken from the depths of a whisper or said in a scream?

Professor Lysley Tenorio Champions Misfits

[Tenorio's] debut short story collection, "Monstress," binds together eight tales of isolated misfits in San Francisco and the Philippines dreaming and scheming their way to impossible glory.
