A Wallson Glass Poetry Seminar
Cosponsored by the Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry

This generative poem-making session will consist of four hours of writing experiments. Our day’s work: to employ word lists, technical journals, films, field guides, tracts and herbal tomes to form strange and beautiful syntheses with our memories and dreams; to reorder our experience of living in the world of things and ideas as poets and human beings; and to try to write as much or more than we have ever written in a day. The transformation of the real and the making of speculative worlds, living in and through the imagination—these activities are especially crucial in dark times. This class is geared toward poets of all skill levels–published poets, casual poets, beginners, and all in between will gain from taking this class. Participants in the New York sessions have included published and prize-winning poets, MFA students and graduates, and beginning poets. If you feel like you ever struggled with “writer’s block”, this will give you tools to work with.

Most classes are offered at a general and member tuition rates based on instruction hours, with Hugo House members receiving a 10% discount on classes fewer than six sessions.

Early bird discounts are available during the first two weeks of registration and apply to both general and member tuition rates.

To help provide financial accessibility to our class offerings, some classes each quarter are offered with a sliding-scale tuition model, allowing students to pay what they can for the class. For these classes, tuition increments starting at $5 and going up to 125% of the standard pricing will be listed on the page.
