Online Class | Cultivating Your Own True Voice [Martha Silano]

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

All Levels | In this generative poetry class, we will focus on locating and refining what poet Charles Simic refers to as “your native nuttiness, a realm which is all your own.” To begin, we will read and discuss poets whose work evidences a fondness for obsession, unique and surprising syntax and diction, and a willingness to take risks with form and subject matter. Once we catalogue the merits of these poems, we will try our hands at creating work that aims to be as daring.
