This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | Is naming fear, power, or violence a political move or a confessional one? This class will begin to approach that question with close, craft-based readings of individual poems by Solmaz Sharif, Muriel Rukeyser, Adrienne Rich, Anaïs Duplan, Audre Lorde, Paul Celan, Layli Long Soldier, and more. Through discussion and generative exercises, students will acquire the tools they need to more richly approach poetry on their own.
