THE LONG POEM WORKSHOP with Jay MillAr

28 January – 15 April 2015 6:30-9:30PM
Location: 192 Spadina Avenue, TORONTO
Fee: $325

Led by poet and publisher Jay MillAr, this 10-week workshop will allow students to investigate the trends of the “genre” of the North American Long (or “Serial”) Poem, with particular emphasis on reading and discussing Canadian Long Poems. Provided with a safe haven from undesirable influences such as the marketplace and the academy (except, as Philip Whalen suggested, in the strictest sense of the word: academy: a walking grove of trees), students can explore the possibilities a long poem form has.
