Come Join The Circus: An Adventure in Writing
All of us have stories to tell, probably a hundred every day. And what if we want to write those stories down? Do we think about whether we should write that story as autobiography, as fiction, as poetry, as a play? What determines the form in which we cast our stories? How do we make such choices? In this workshop we will look at the narrative poem and what choices we make when deciding upon what genre our writing will take. From Beowulf to the ballad, from the epic to Anne Carson, the narrative poem has been with us from the oral tradition through the contemporary poetry slam. We’ll look at some wonderful examples of narrative poems and consider them as models for the stories we would like to tell.
