First Fight, Then Fiddle: Toward a Revolutionary Poetics [Kaveh Akbar]
This class is being offered on a sliding scale. General price reflects the true cost of running this program. There are also pay-what-you-can options, and a Supporter option which helps us offer classes to all, regardless of ability to pay.
Audre Lorde’s words, “Revolution is not a one-time event,” provide a frame for Kaveh Akbar’s exploration of poetic revolution against form, against line, against grammar. He discusses works by Gwendolyn Brooks, Forough Farrokhzad, Vijay Seshadri, and others to see how they push not only to rout convention, but to tear it down and offer up something better. This class is being offered in partnership with Seattle Arts & Lectures’ Poetry Series. This class is being offered in partnership with Seattle Arts & Lectures’ Poetry Series.
