Concept Album: Generating a Sequence of Poems

All Levels | Some of the most powerful albums feature a song cycle revolving around a central theme. Th e tracks work individually but build a larger meaning when the sequence is heard in full. In this class, we’ll explore a question or idea through a sequence of poems. We’ll generate poems through games and other methods, dive into mentor texts, and research to inspire a series of linked poems.

The dates for this class have been updated from the print catalog.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
