One event on June 20, 2021 at 1:00 pm

Instructor: Neil Perry
$60 Members | $65 Nonmembers
Session One: Sunday, June 13, 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Session Two: Sunday, June 20, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

In this workshop we’ll do a deep dive into the quatrain – what does it mean to write in these stanzas?  Where have they taken poetry in the past?  What can we do with them?  We’ll talk about, of course, formal considerations, but also some more philosophical ones.  Participants will produce original work in this seminar, which will meet twice–first to see where the quatrain might take us in discussion and a week later to workshop poems written in the wake of that discussion.

Nathaniel (Neil) Perry is the author of Nine Acres (American Poetry Review, 2011), which won the 2011 APR/Honickman First Book Prize. His poems and translations have appeared recently in American Poetry Review, Cincinnati Review, Gettysburg Reviews, Bat City Review, and elsewhere. He is the editor of the Hampden-Sydney Poetry Review and lives with his family in rural southside Virginia.
