The State of Poetry Publishing and the Rise of the Prose Poem
Off Campus Writers Workshop presents Al Degenova "The State of Poetry Publishing and the Rise of the Prose Poem"
Al DeGenova will present a discussion of the state of poetry publishing, with a close-up look at the prose poem—that cross-genre form currently growing in popularity. Topics covered: What do poetry journals and editors look for? Is the chapbook back in vogue? What of poetry self-publishing? Is it a "prose poem" or "poetic prose"?
DeGenova is a publisher, editor and poet. He launched After Hours, a journal of Chicago writing and art, in June 2000 and continues as editor and publisher. DeGenova has published two full-length poetry collections and two poetry chapbooks; a fifth collection is due in 2013 from Timberline Press. He is currently an adjunct professor at Concordia University, and is a blues saxophonist and one-time contributing editor to DownBeat magazine.
