Generative Revision Intensive

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | 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 of 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 until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
