How can we create an image to encapsulate an idea, an emotion, a state of mind? We will explore the power of imagery as a means of crystallizing an idea. We will seek out and sift through the visual material of the world to find the “right” image for what we want to say. We will consider poems rich with imagery (both real and surreal) by Wallace Stevens, Marianne Moore, Paul Celan, Ed Skoog, Chelsea Minnis, and others. Along with readings, the class will include generative writing prompts and mini-workshops.
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.
