Documentary Poetry: Writing the Facts in Stanzas [Anastacia-Renee]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | Documentary poetry captures historical moments in words and images. The poet may use multiple points of view, historical records and quotations, and even visual imagery or video. In this class, we’ll research, discuss, and create mixedgenre contemporary documentary and historical poems, excavating and drawing literary inspiration from Patricia Smith, Tarfia Faizullah, Robin Coste Lewis, Bettina Judd, Claudia Castro Luna, and Quenton Baker.
