Poetry Generation Intensive (ZOOM)

All Levels | When generating new poems, we can find ourselves going back to the same well again and again, never considering new watersheds. In this class, students will explore techniques for generating new poems, drawing on one’s own and others’ poems. We’ll look at methods for initiating, guiding, and expanding drafts and workshop poems with an eye to opening them up to further invention. Students will emerge with 10 to 15 drafts and a tools for generating new material.

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.
