2020 NCW Webinar Series Playlist:
As writers of fiction, we have to make a lot of decisions. One of the things that can make or break a story is how it is being told. Deciding on Point of View can feel perilous because no matter how well we think we know it, we stumble. Choosing a POV can feel like an obstacle course: Head-hopping. Keeping the verb tense consistent. Weak voices. Just like witness statements in a crime can throw off the facts, mistakes in POV can throw off a story and demoralize a reader.
Prose poems are pushy, poignant, dreamy, powerful and empowering. For some, they’re a bit paradoxical. Do poetry and prose collide—or mate? In any case, a new entity emerges. And though prose poems may defy simple definition, writers go on writing them not just for the form’s freedom, but also for its delight. Prose poems have astonishing strengths all their own. In this two-hour workshop, we will first hear a few prose poems, then look at two or three, then write. You will have fun! After each of two short writing interludes, you’ll have an opportunity to read all or part of what you’ve created.
This class will be taught by Loveland's poet laureate, Veronica Patterson
Veronica Patterson received Individual Artist’s Fellowships from the Colorado Council on the Arts in 1984 and 1997 and has had residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Hedgebrook, and Rocky Mountain National Park. She is a graduate of Cornell University, the University of Michigan and the University of Northern Colorado. She also holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Warren Wilson College.
