Lyrical Texture: Generative Strategies for Poets
The focus of this class is lyrical texture. This may include developing sonic patterns, tactile landscapes, and compelling juxtapositions. Students will generate new poems and incorporate strategies to revise existing work. Methods include generative experiments and prompts, close readings of poems to identify different textures, and discussions around drawing inspiration from other media.
