Ars Poetica: A Poetry Workshop – with Octavio Quintanilla

  • 11 Jul 2024
  • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

This will be a generative workshop in which we will consider the nature of poetry, its essence, its purpose. We will read examples for context, and then write our own. We will use our writing to practice points for revision.

OCTAVIO QUINTANILLA is the author of the poetry collections, If I Go Missing (Slough Press, 2014), The Book of Wounded Sparrows (Texas Review Press, 2024), and Las Horas Imposibles / The Impossible Hours, winner of the 2024 Ambroggio Prize given by the Academy of American Poets.  Octavio is the founder and director of the literature & arts festival, VersoFrontera, publisher of Alabrava Press, and former Poet Laureate of San Antonio, TX. His Frontextos (visual poems) have been published and exhibited widely. He teaches Literature and Creative Writing at Our Lady of the Lake University.
