Cross-Pollinating: Poetry and Prose

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | Exploring where poetry and prose can boldly intersect and enliven one another in unexpected ways, we will look at examples and write our own prose poems, haibun, lyrical short talks, and other hybrid forms in this fun and generative class. Drawing inspiration from writers such as Anne Carson, Gertrude Stein, Bashō, Elizabeth Bradfield, and Joy Williams, you will leave with a batch of new writing and a bushel of fresh approaches.

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.
