Title: The Long Poem Workshop with Jay MillAr
Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Description: Led by poet and publisher Jay MillAr, this 9-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.
