VATC- The Facts Outside of the Lines with Willie Perdomo
Three Hour Workshop
Date: Saturday, November 16, 2019
Time: 12:00 noon - 3:00 p.m.
Location: Pace University, NY
Max: 15 writers

This 3-hour workshop seeks to explore what might be latent in a poem, or, in other words, where is the blood that accompanies the bones. Poems have a life outside of their form, so what is the data that informs the poem? When does a poet get to a point where they say, "That's not really what I wanted to write about. I just couldn't find the right words." Sometimes, that moment is more about fear, correctness, than it is about technique. In this workshop, we'll focus on the matter of a poem.

WILLIE PERDOMO is the author of The Crazy Bunch (Penguin Poets, 2019) The Essential Hits of Shorty Bon Bon (Penguin Poets, 2014), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and winner of the International Latino Book Award; Smoking Lovely (Rattapallax, 2004), winner of the PEN Open Book Award, and Where a Nickel Costs a Dime (Norton, 1996), a finalist for the Poetry Society of America Norma Farber First Book Award. His work has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature, Poetry, Bomb Magazine, and African Voices. He is currently a Lucas Arts Program Literary Fellow and teaches English at Phillips Exeter Academy.
