Writing the Rainbow: Queer Poetics

This class offers an engaging and rigorous look at how poetry "queers" language. Lessons from queer poetry about disrupting, transforming, and challenging everyday uses of language will benefit any student of the craft, and this course is open to both queer students and allies. The course will include readings from notable queer poets from Sappho to O'Hara to Pico to Danez Smith. Students will workshop two poems, and instructor feedback will be provided on a final portfolio..
