The Miracle of Prose Poetry at Bristol Folk House
Full fee £28.50; concessions available.

A event held at Bristol Folk House on Sunday 4th August. The event starts at 10:00.

Who has not imagined 'the miracle of a poetic prose, musical though rhythmless and rhymeless, flexible yet strong enough to identify with the lyrical impulses of the soul, the ebbs and flows of revery, the pangs of conscience?, questions Charles Baudelaire (in Francis Scarfe's translation). This workshop with local poet Suzannah V. Evans will take us to the heart of the prose poem, from its genesis in nineteenth-century French poetry to contemporary practitioners of the form. We will consider what sets prose poetry apart from flash fiction and other kinds of poetry, and explore the 'miracle of a poetic prose' in our own writing.
