Prompt for July 3 – Virtual Carson McCullers House

Borrowings, gleanings, erasures, black-outs, and riffs. These are a few of the ways that poets reuse the canon to make new, fully alive verse. In honor of Independence Day, our national holiday, let’s make something living out of the old poem by Francis Scott Key. What’s your vision, and “[w]hat is that which the breeze… now conceals, now discloses?”

Try shaking up the old poem and writing something new out of the process. Then join us at 7pm for our online salon on Zoom for readings and conversation. Hope to see you!
