All Levels | All poets write with influence: what we read, conversations, the interests of the world around us—each serves as an outside influence. The voice is the inside influence. To make a poem truly good, the voice must rise through the fray, wearing those other words like a coat but still allowing the voiced body to be visible, heard. In this generative class, we’ll read, write, and workshop—practicing talk, observation, and listening—to create poems that speak with our own poetic voice.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
Jeanine Walker holds a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from the University of Houston. Her poetry collection, Diagram of Parts, is forthcoming from Groundhog Poetry Press. Her poems have appeared in Chattahoochee Review, New Ohio Review, Prairie Schooner, and elsewhere.
