Crash Course Rainbow: One-Day Workshop on Color and Poetry [Sierra Nelson]
A lane of Yellow led the eye … — Emily Dickinson
Who shouted with glee / when the color blue was born? — Pablo Neruda
As the light lengthens its autumnal slant, it’s the perfect time to reawaken color in our writing. Drawing from artistic, literary, and scientific texts for inspiration—as well as our own experiences and imagination—we’ll expand our synesthetic palette and experiment with a prismatic array of generative in-class exercises. Awaken your senses and writing life. Slanted toward poetry; all levels welcome.
