NYWW Lunch Poems, Lunch Prose
Lunch Poems, Lunch Prose

The idea for this course springs from Frank O'Hara's legendary collection, Lunch Poems, which, as the story goes, O'Hara composed on lunch breaks from his work as a curator at MoMA. The collection's poems are filled with imagery, idea, fun, and spontaneity. Yours will be, too, if you follow O'Hara's simple rules: "You just go on your nerve,  you take your chances and try to avoid being logical." Beginning June 1, NYWW will offer synchronous zoom session lunchtime workshops. The sessions will last 50 minutes, from 12N to 12:50 (EST), leaving participants enough time to stop at the hot dog or pretzel stands on their way back to--where do people go these days, because its not the office. Anyway, four 50 minutes sessions per week, M-T-W-Th, with a rotating roster of workshop leaders, each of whom will determine the week's focus (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, memoir, or a mix). Each session will begin with a short craft talk, a short craft sample, a prompt, exercise-writing time, and time at the end for a few shares. The clock will be watched, you'll be in, out, and on your way back to work or the pool with a notebook full of drafts.

Week 1: June 1-4, Tim Tomlinson
Week 2: June 7-10, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang
