Extraordinary Poems in Ordinary Moments

In this walking-and-writing class, students will traverse the city, find points of interest, and turn such moments into poems. By studying published poems that detail moments in a range of ways, then walking, looking, and discovering poetic occurrences, students will find ways to say the unsayable. Mentor texts include works by C. D. Wright, John Hollander, Suji Kwock Kim, Tracy K. Smith, Jericho Brown, and Louise Glück. All will finish the course with four to six new poems.

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.
