Molly will be holding “The Little Lyric” workshop at the Poetry by the Sea Conference at Long Island Sound on May, 26 2017, 10-11:30 am. Visit the conference site here. Please note that the workshop is currently filled up.

The pungency of the brief remark is the subject of our workshop on the little lyric. We will be reading and writing little lyrics, deciphering the mysteries of small poems, then trying to make the power of the brief poem our own as we consider short works by Sappho, Basho, Hardy, Dickinson, Crapsey, Williams, Creeley, Szymborska, Ammons, Menashe, Neidecker and others. As we roam from the ancient to the contemporary, from Asia to Eastern Europe to North America, we will consider the forms of prosodic brevity from the triplet to the triolet, the haiku to the cinquain. This is a class for all levels and any experience with poetry.
