This 3 hour workshop is designed for students who have pantoums in progress. Please bring your own drafts and we will review in class.
You may have been in a previous class with Donald and and started a pantoum, or have pantoums of your own you are working on. We will spend time reviewing pantoums from students in class.
The pantoum originated as a Malaysian poetry form that involves a specific pattern of repeating lines. It was
discovered in the West by Victor Hugo, adopted by Baudelaire, and championed by contemporary American
poets such as Carolyn Kizer, John Ashbery, Marilyn Hacker, and Donald Justice. The form promotes poems of
imaginative narrative or obsessional description. Pantoums were originally an oral form and their power of outloud
presentation persists among contemporary literary examples.
When you register, you will be sent the ZOOM link to participate, and Donald's email to submit poems in advance (if you wish). We will also share via screen, or by reading aloud.
