Writing alongside Gwendolyn Brooks and Alice Notley [Deborah Woodard]

All levels. This class will focus on the work of two major American women poets: Gwendolyn Brooks and Alice Notley. Between them, we’ll explore a range of approaches from formal to experimental verse with a focus on narrative strategies for exploring history, culture, and myth, often from the perspective of the dispossessed. Weekly readings and writing prompts. Required texts: Blacks by Gwendolyn Brooks; Culture of One and Songs and Stories of the Ghouls by Alice Notley.
