Why you should take this class: Because you're a third culture kid who writes third genre* work: You have good sense when it comes to knowing whether what you're writing is better off as a poem or when it ought to be prose. But what do you do when it's both? Together, we will explore the art of the lyric essay, a poet's prose.

Class Description: We will look at the art of the lyric essay and think through what makes a poet’s prose successful; establishing structure and voice. Readings will include: Cathy Park Hong, Fady Joudah, Sarah Manguso, Anne Carson, Rainer Maria Rilke, Eula Biss, Hanif Abdurraqib Willis, Lucia Perillo and Ocean Vuong.

Marwa Helal is a poet and journalist. Her work appears in Apogee, Hyperallergic, the Offing, Poets & Writers, the Recluse, Winter Tangerine, and elsewhere. She is the author of I AM MADE TO LEAVE I AM MADE TO RETURN (No, Dear/Small Anchor Press, 2017) and Invasive species (Nightboat Books, 2019). Helal is the winner of BOMB Magazine’s Biennial 2016 Poetry Contest and has been awarded fellowships from Poets House, Brooklyn Poets, Cave Canem, and the Conversation Literary Festival. Born in Al Mansurah, Egypt, Helal currently lives and teaches in Brooklyn, New York.
