Crash Course Rainbow: A Generative Workshop on Color & Poetry

The price has been corrected from the print catalog.

All Levels | “A lane of Yellow led the eye…” -Emily Dickinson

As the light lengthens its autumnal slant, it’s the perfect time to reawaken color in our writing. Drawing from artistic, literary, and scientific texts for inspiration — as well as our own experiences and imagination — we’ll expand our synesthetic palette and experiment with a prismatic array of generative in-class prompts. Awaken your senses and writing life! Slanted toward poetry; all genres welcome.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
