We’ll follow Whitman’s lead and “invite [our] soul[s].” We’ll divide our time between reading, generating new poems, and workshopping. We’ll read classic English and American poems regarding the soul by John Donne, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and Richard Wilbur as well as contemporary poems. This class is for writers who enjoy discussion and for those who want to make an emotional impact with abstract concepts like soul.
John Wesley Horton (aka Johnny Horton) co-directs the University of Washington’s summer creative writing program in Rome. He’s received a Washington Artist Trust GAP grant and his poems appear in Poetry Northwest, Cutbank, Notre Dame Review, Borderlands, and The Los Angeles Review.
