The Sequence [Judith Skillman]
All Levels | Students will explore their obsessions in order to write a sequence of poems centered on a person, myth, place, or other subject. We rarely write one piece without finding images worthy of investigation. Using Keats’ concept of negative capability, we will “entertain uncertainty.” The sequence can be developed into a chapbook or book-length collection. Prompts will be provided by instructor. Example: Berryman’s Dream Songs. Bring a poem to the first class.
