Fairy Tale Poetry with Christopher Soden
October 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Unfamiliar to most, Fairy Tale Poetry is a beguiling, provocative genre that explores the literature of our earliest memories through the lens of contemporary verse. Modern poets address the subtext of stories (such as The Frog King, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood….) that have informed our cultural sensibilities since time immemorial. Come join us as we consider this astonishing and surprising genre.
Christopher Stephen Soden received his MFA in Creative Writing (Poetry) in January 2005 from Vermont College of Fine Arts. He has written film and theatre critique for The Fort Worth Ally, EdgeDallas, John Garcia’s The Column, Examiner.com and sharpcritic.com. His poetry has appeared in numerous venues including: The Cortland Review, Rattle, G & L Review, The Texas Observer, Borderlands, Assaracus, and Ganymede Poets. Short plays of his (including: Water, Radio Flyer, Every Day is Christmas In Heaven and Queer Anarchy) have been staged at Bishop Arts Theatre Center, The MAC and Nouveau 47. Christopher also teaches and lectures on craft, theory, genre and explication.
