Land Beyond Map [Laura Da’]
All Levels | This course uses the concept of the map and its inherent limitations as a central metaphor for crafting new work and evoking place. The creation, crossing, and elimination of boundaries of language and narrative will underpin in-class prompts and extension activities. Writing place has a long history in poetry, but this course will look closely at the ways that worldview shapes, guides, and hinders. Readings will include Cedar Sigo, Camille T. Dungy, and Megan Bang. Writers will leave this course with a variety of observational strategies and suggestions for future projects and ways of learning from the land.
