Experimental Women Poets

All Levels | Come spend some time with the authors at the heart of the contemporary avant-garde. In this generative reading class, we’ll examine some of the women leading the forefront of the experimental poetry scene. We’ll take into account the materiality of words on pages, books as physical objects, writers as people rooted in the world. We’ll interrogate the poetics of race, gender, sex, love, death, violence, and translation. We’ll even question the very foundations of poetry, and what makes something “poetic.”
