Modern Sonnets [Constance Hansen]
All Levels | In this class students will study modern sonnets by poets writing in the 20th and 21st centuries. Each week we will study a new sonneteer, discuss their take on the sonnet, and take a stab at writing our own in generative exercises. Students may give and receive feedback in workshop. Together we will read John Murillo, Wanda Coleman, Tyehimba Jess, Terrance Hayes, Diane Seuss, Richie Hofmann, Marilyn Hacker, and others. This class is open to all regardless of previous experience.
