Creatures of the Sea: Creative Writing Experiments [Sierra Nelson]

All Levels | Sensing like an octopus, how can we expand our imagery? What is the kraken’s myth, and where else can we take it? What makes words school like fish? What exists at our work’s hydrothermal depths? This generative class provides eclectic prompts using poetic and scientific sources for inspiration, including work by Elizabeth Bishop, Elizabeth Bradfield, Camille T. Dungy, and Aimee Nezhukumatathil. Most writing happens in class, culminating in a portfolio with optional conference. Slanted towards poetry; all genres welcome. No previous marine biology knowledge required.
