FREE | Ways of Seeing: The Image and The Imagists (for BIPOC)
In this class, we will explore how images are used in various forms, including haiku, tanka, and short-form poetry. We will read and discuss the work of Akiko Yosano, Matsuo Basho, Yosa Buson, H.D., Amy Lowell, Gwendolyn Brooks, Lucille Clifton, and others. Through activities and writing practice, we will create poems that highlight the image, heighten our senses, and pop off the page.
