Writing with Scientific Thought [Deborah Poe]
Spend an afternoon using science to inform and inspire your writing. We’ll examine model writers like Arthur Sze, Bernadette Mayer, Primo Levi, Italo Calvino, and Andrea Barrett, exploring ways in which scientific thought can be used as a launching pad for creative writing and how scientific terms and concepts help generate new poetry and prose. We will draft new material from class prompts and will share and discuss strengths of that new work. This class is appropriate for all levels.
