Blood, Rust & Bone: Writing the Broken Body

All Levels | We will explore the Broken Body as a portal, an entry into the sacred in poems and prose. What is it about what is broken that opens us to an altered state of awareness? How does brokenness invoke ritual? Bring power to our writing? There will be a craft talk followed by a writing prompt and the opportunity to explore what we’ve learned and bring it to the page.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
