Hugo House presents Writing the Duplex with Jericho Brown

March 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PST


From the organizers:

In this 90-minute class, Jericho Brown will lead students through an exercise for writing a duplex poem — a form he invented that blends the ghazal, the sonnet, and the blues. Each student should bring 14 disparate lines of 9–11 syllables to class. Lines may be from sentences of the student’s own prose or lines from poems that haven’t worked. No two lines have to be from the same source or time. Each student should come to workshop with each line on its own small sliver of paper. Students will leave class with a new process and a new poem.
