Dear You: Creative Experiments with Letters [Sierra Nelson]
All Levels | “This is my letter to the world / That never wrote to me…” – Emily Dickinson
From the playful to political, the personal to persona, we’ll use the form of the letter (an address from, reaching out to) to draft new creative work, experimenting across genres including poetry, prose, and collage. We’ll find inspiration in literary letters, letter-poems, and everyday postcards, with the emphasis on generating new pieces, beginning mostly in class, plus weekly protest letters. Optional one-on-one conferences available at the end.
