Funny Despite Itself: Humor and Poetry

$65.00 Members
$75.00 Non-members

Despite its best efforts, poetry can be funny. A good joke needs the same things that a good poem needs: concision, precision, a horse, and a priest. In this seminar we'll read funny poems (Harryette Mullen, Ron Padgett, Heather McHugh, Charles Simic) and dare to write them through a couple of writing exercises. Bring to class three jokes that you like.
