Megin’s prose poetry collection Mongrel Tongue, which won the 1913 Press Prize for First Books, was published in autumn 2019. Megin grew up in Mérida, Venezuela and Denver, USA, and received her MFA from the prestigious New School in New York. Her poems and essays have appeared in the Best American Poetry Blog, Barrelhouse, The Inquisitive Eater, NOO Journal, Barrow Street, Denver Quarterly, LIT, Tarpaulin Sky, and other journals. You can read our interview with her on our blog. She teaches our Level I course in The Hague.

We’ll be looking at Megin’s collection and talking about prose poetry and the differences with lined poetry and flash fiction as well as more general topics, such as the art of translation and how to find inspiration…and a publisher.

To get the most out of the class we recommend you read the collection in advance. You can get your copy direct from the publisherSmall Press Distribution or Amazon. There will also be copies available for purchase on the night.
