Liberate your writing practice and bust open the boundaries of your work with this genre-bending workshop. Each week, you'll be introduced to fresh hybrid and mixed genre work while exploring new possibilities in your own poems. What can a poem do when it isn't hemmed-in by convention? How can we achieve poetry's effects without received forms? With plenty of in-class exercises and weekly feedback, this class is an invigorating and sunny literary joy ride for writers of all experience levels. Maximum: 12 writers
NOTE: To protect everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic, we're offering our workshops via Zoom. All students must first sign up for a free Zoom account. Setting it up is easy. And we can help you with questions, if needed. For each class, you'll receive a Zoom "invitation," from the instructor. Click the link...follow the simple directions about the settings for your microphone and in-computer video, and you're immediately in the "room" for the workshop. For critique workshops, instructors will communicate with students about the process of sharing work. For more generative workshops, students will be writing together while on Zoom.
