Poetic Prose Essay Published.


The lifeblood of an MFA program is the craft essay. In these, the student reads a book (either devoted to the craft of writing or just in their genre) then writes an essay describing the particular elements of writing craft that were addressed. My own version of these includes my own takeaways, which are bullet points of key advice or techniques. I then keep all the bullet points in a single document to consolidate my learning.

I just published one of my essays “Poetic Prose: The Art and Craft of Description” in Causeway Lit Magazine. Enjoy.
