Course Catalog

Derived Poetry & Its (De)forms

All Levels | In this course we’ll dig up, corrupt, and de-arrange existing texts through forms like the glossa and Terrance Hayes’s The Golden Shovel. We’ll also experiment with erasures and collage. Together, we’ll look at the approaches and forms used by Amber Dawn, Srikanth Reddy, and Isobel O’Hare. Our first session will be largely generative. Session two will begin with a discussion of plagiarism and recognition. Class will conclude with opportunities for students to share and receive feedback on their derived works.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
