Museum as Muse: A Hybrid Class
We’ll explore three intimate-scaled Seattle museums—the Frye, the Seattle Asian Art Museum, and the Henry. We’ll visit the museums on our own, convening on Zoom to workshop the poems and short prose these trips inspire. One session will be held outdoors at Volunteer Park. Expect prompts, instructor feedback, pop-up extras. The Henry and Seattle Asian Art Museum charge admission; the Frye is free. Links to collections will be sent to those who prefer to be entirely digital. Text will include How it Was with Scotland by Joan Fiset (Ravenna Press).
Deborah Woodard's first full-length collection, Plato's Bad Horse, appeared in 2006 (Bear Star Press). Deborah Woodard's most recent books are Borrowed Tales (Stockport Flats); No Finis: Triangle Testimonies, 1911 (Ravenna Press); and Obtuse Diary, from the Italian of Amelia Rosselli (Entre Rios Books). She co-curates the reading series Margin Shift: Friends in Poetry.
