Exploring the Elegy Workshop w/ Matthew Dickman
"There has been a lot of loss in each of our lives over the last two years: from the deaths of friends and family to an upheaval of social norms and interactions. In this class we will be exploring The Elegy in various ways. We will be reading and discussing examples of The Elegy by writers such as Kevin Young, Dorianne Laux, Marie Howe and others while writing and sharing our own. This is not a critical workshop but an exploratory one. The elegy is perhaps the most important poetic form of the moment-- let's explore it together!"
