Poetry & Pop Culture [Morgan Parker]
Superman. Beyoncé. MTV. Barack Obama. This course will inspire students to fold their personal and cultural here and now into their poetry and short prose. We’ll read contemporary poetry by both emerging and iconic writers, we’ll watch YouTube clips, listen to iTunes, and read our text messages. This will be equal parts writing group and equal parts book club: we’ll both immerse ourselves in texts and vibrant conversation, and write and workshop furiously.
