Peer Workshop on Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass

March 1 @ EST 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Available at Ampersand Books

Participants in Dante Michaeux’s class of 2/24/2022, Prose Rhythms in Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, are invited to share their drafts, written in any genre, inspired by the prompts listed below. Alison Meyers, Writers & Books’ Executive Director, will facilitate. 


Look out the smallest window in your home. Make a list of the first 100 things you see (hint: the number of visible objects is less important than the facets of your imagination). Compose a piece in any literary genre including all 100 things.

Choose a single object and write 100 sentences about it.

Choose the occupation from the fifth section of Whitman’s “A Song for Occupations” that most closely resembles your own occupation or vocation. Write an apologia for or a diatribe against the chosen occupation.
