Tonight we are very excited to welcome LAUREN EGGERT-CROWE to The Poetry Lab for a generative workshop course on the prose poem!
A prose poetry is written in prose instead of verse, but retains the qualities of poetry. Charles Simic describes it as "a bowl of language."
Lauren Eggert-Crowe is the author of three poetry chapbooks: In The Songbird Laboratory (Dancing Girl Press 2013),The Exhibit (Hyacinth Girl Press 2013), and Rungs, collaboratively written with Margaret Bashaar (Grey Book Press 2015). She was born and raised in rural Pennsylvania and now lives in Los Angeles. She has written essays, book reviews, interviews, and cultural reportage for Salon, The Rumpus, The Millions, The Nervous Breakdown, Midnight Breakfast,and L.A. Review of Books. Her poetry appears in Tupelo Quarterly, SpringGun, Sixth Finch, Interrupture, Terrain.organd DIAGRAM, among others.
