Finding Poetry

Poetry is happening all around us. It exists on billboards, in magazines, in conversations. But in our daily rush and distractions, we miss them. We’ll seek to find, uncover, and bring to light the hidden poetry from some unexpected places: science textbooks, political speeches, pop music, Yelp reviews, graffiti, etc. Incorporating new vocabularies, voices, and styles, we place ourselves into situations we’ve never experienced. We will shift between both treated and untreated found poems, engaging in “Frankensteining” pieces of text together, blackout poems, and adding our own unpredictable, inspired words to the mix.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
