Intermediate/Advanced | Toni Morrison has said that “as a writer, a failure is just information,” and revision is recognition of past failure. In this class, we’ll study how to improve our writing through utilizing a process of “conscious” revision, where the writing process itself becomes part of the work. We’ll look at the poems and strategies used by poets such as Bhanu Kapil, Matthew Rohrer, Terrance Hayes, Wallace Stevens, and Emily Dickinson to refine old work and generate new ideas.
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.
