interview / writing workshop

Posted by Brian Kim Stefans | Tue Sep 23rd 2003 12:41 p.m.

Hi again,

There's an interview with me and a new sequence, "The 'Nineties' Tried Your
Game," on the Iowa Review web:

Also, am teaching my first poetry writing workshop at the Poetry Project:

"Jai-Alai for Autocrats"

SATURDAYS AT 12 PM: 10 Sessions Begin October 18th.
Stefans writes, "This workshop will focus on the relationship between poems
inspired by a sense of play - the way we appreciate words when they're
randomly, surprisingly conjoined - and work, which might be loosely
described as poems that are subtly crafted, resistant to easy meanings, even
'traditional.' We'll look at elements of prosody that extend beyond meter as
it is generally understood - whether that be the counting of accents or the
line by breath - into the use of literary masks, deviant syntaxes, Oulipian
practices, writing in dialect (invented or not), and experiments with
computers." Stefans' books include Free Space Comix and Fashionable Noise:
On Digital Poetics.

The workshop fee is $300. This includes a one year Individual membership, as
well as tuition for any and all workshops at the Poetry Project for the fall
and spring. Reservations are required due to limited class space, and
payment must be received in advance. Please send payment and reservations
