Poets of Witness and Wit [Carolyne Wright]

All Levels | These are poets known both for their voices of witness to injustice, misogyny, racism, war, and other conditions of extremity, and for perspectives enriched with wit, irony, and self-deprecating humor in thoughtful and resonant work. We will read poems that respond to urgent political and social contexts, and through writing exercises and workshop discussions, create our own work that inspires and provokes. Poets read in this course include Sandra Beasley, Lorna Dee Cervantes, Denise Duhamel, Gary Lilley, and Terrance Hayes.
