The Poetry of the Sentence

Writers who work between prose and poetry will delight in this class, which seeks to explore the infinite possibilities of the poetic sentence. What happens when we stop over-steering the sentence and allow for multiple landscapes and interior investigations? Trusting the stumbles, we might expose glowing gaps of truth, longing, and attention. Class will include readings, generative prompts, and a mini-workshop. Readings include work by Gertrude Stein, Renee Gladman, Bhanu Kapil, and more.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
