6 Weeks, 6 Poems - Remote!
Whether you're looking to experiment, produce new works for a collection, or work on revisions, this class offers the opportunity to broaden and deepen your knowledge of poetry. Each week, you will study the craft and vision of contemporary poets and write your own poems to be workshopped the following week. This class will allow you to break old habits, play with unconventional forms, and, most importantly, leave the course with both fresh and revised drafts of many poems. We'll be looking at work by Sharon Olds, Marie Howe, Gregory Orr, Oliver de la Paz, Gregory Pardlo, Natalie Diaz, Claudia Rankine, Ada Limon, Nick Flynn, and Kaveh Akbar, among others.
This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
