Class Description

In this class, for new and experienced poets alike, we will explore and experiment with multimedia poetry—poetry combined with video, still images, audio, typography, animation, movement, live performance, or other content forms. During class we'll view, share, and discuss examples, and then we'll brainstorm and begin drafting or adapting our own poems (or, if students choose, poems in the public domain) for the week’s multimedia poetry assignment. Students will use any tech or traditional tools available to them to generate their multimedia poetry projects. Each week students will share their previous week’s projects, including challenges and problems, in supportive workshop discussions, and begin work on a new project. We will learn about the increasing visibility of poetry through multimedia projects and opportunities to submit, share, publish, or perform multimedia works. Students will be expected to revise and complete six multimedia poetry projects during the course. Laptop or device recommended.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better.
