Master Class - The Element of Surprise with Andrés Cerpa

  • Hudson Valley Writers' Center Philipse Manor Station Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591 United States (map)

Join Andrés Cerpa for a two hour Master Class on introducing the element of surprise in poetry.

Often poets strive to build cohesion in their work. Yet as readers surprise and discordant notes offer us wild moments of joy and inspire reflection.

Students will submit a packet of three poems and will receive written feedback as well as example poems to reach outward into the unknown, to surprise both themselves and the reader.
