Poetry as a Waking Dream

In many poems, dream imagery and archetypal journeys or predicaments create a state similar to that between sleeping and waking. We’ll read dream-like poems to serve as models from writers such as Mahmoud Darwish, Rodger Kamenetz, William Blake, and C.D. Wright and then write in class, focusing on using associations and imagery to craft poems whose resolutions arise from dream logic.

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.
