What defines poetry? What counts as a poem? Can even a sentence be a poem? Working with constraints and compression, discover your ability through brevity in this workshop dedicated to the humble sentence. Whether you're a published poet, a grand-slam champion, or have never written a poem, this workshop is for you. The casual evening will include generative prompts and writing time. You'll go home with a new poem or two!
