If style is the carriage of the mind, as some writers have said, then great writing must be like Grand Theft Auto. In this generative class, we’ll examine the styles of writers we love. Then we’ll break into their garages (metaphorically) and take their cars out for a spin. We’ll practice stealing what we love in the service of writing poems that perfect strangers will love and want to take from. We’ll learn from John Donne, Philip Larkin, Eduardo C. Corral, Roger Reeves, Dora Malech, Sandra Beasley, Jim Harrison, Sylvia Plath, and more. All levels of experience welcome.
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.
