Time and Distance Overcome: Research in Poetry [Erin Malone]

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | Most poets begin their work by contemplating their own lived experiences. But what about when they start instead with the idea of exploring someone else’s, or delve into science or the historical record to make poems? We’ll read work by Linda Bierds, Natasha Trethewey, Tyehimba Jess, and others to help us discover how research can feed our poetry. Come with an idea for a story you want to tell; each week we’ll have prompts to experiment with in class.
