If you live in Central Virginia and you write poems, take my summer workshop at WriterHouse in Charlottesville. We'll experience poems as things, asking if the object's "function is to burst / the boundaries of the poem." The class is open to all ages and abilities. I'll provide feedback on a weekly basis. 
Instructor: John Most Cost: $142 Members | $158 Non-Members 6 Thursdays, July 10-August 14, 2014 | 9:00 AM-11:30 AM. Limited to 12 students. We will read, write, and discuss poems in order to refine what makes our poems poetic. We will look at poems and poets that have influenced our own writing ...

Introduction


I am a poet. I was born in Covington, Virginia in 1977.

I edited and founded the little magazine Call: Review (2003-2006) while living in New York City.

I earned my PhD from the European Graduate School (2007), studying under Giorgio Agamben and other thinkers.

I am the author of three collections of poetry, all of which are hand-made: Atelier (2005), Persephone (2006), and Field (2008). These three books are part of a larger series of thirteen books. Each book has been/will be written by a different character: Atelier was written by Claire Lux, Persephone was written by Hannah Nijinsky, and Field was written by Eric Reburn. Each book also has/will have an audio and video component—for every book, there is an accompanying album and movie of the same name.

I currently live in Crozet, Virginia.
