When the Color Blue Was Born [Sierra Nelson]
All Levels. “Who shouted with glee / when the color blue was born?” (Neruda). As we submerge into watery gray, awaken your senses and writing life! Using COLOR as our prismatic approach, we’ll expand our synesthetic palette and experiment with unusual generative writing prompts across the rainbow to create a portfolio of new work. Our inspiration will pull from science, art, literature, and fresh observations, with a slant toward poetry. Optional feedback conference at end. Most writing will be done in class with some light homework.
