Language Renovation via the Lyric Essay

Intermediate | Part playful reading, part generative writing, this class explores how creative nonfiction and poetry can blend to become a fantastic “Other.” We’ll do a close reading of a plethora of essays, poems, and experimental forms. Class will include weekly reading homework, discussion, and in-class writing with instructor-generated prompts. Readings will include fiction with footnotes, lyrical and traditional essays, prose/hybrid poems, and letters. Expect to read work by Roxane Gay, Eleanor Roosevelt, Maggie Nelson, Natalie Diaz, Kim Addonizio, and Jordy Rosenberg.

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.
