A Pattern of Behavior: Serial Poems with Krystal Languell

Feb 21, 2015 | 11:30 am - 2:30 pm | Recurring Event: An event every week that begins at 11:30am on [day], happening 6 times

Krystal Langeull

How can we create momentum across a series of poems while holding onto the original big idea? A linked sequence creates its own terms for existence, and those terms may be formal, rhetorical, metrical, emotional, or a combination—or something else! This workshop will engage in exercises designed to develop and sustain a serial poem. Possible course texts include readings from Alice Notley, Dawn Lundy Martin, Roland Barthes, and Rickey Laurentiis. Students will emerge from this workshop with a draft of a six-poem sequence.

Krystal Languell was born in South Bend, Indiana. She is the author of the books Call the Catastrophists and Gray Market as well as the chapbooks Last Song, and Be a Dead Girl. A core member of the Belladonna* Collaborative, she also edits the journal Bone Bouquet and is a 2014-2015 Lower Manhattan Cultural Council workspace resident.
