This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | This course is completely celebratory! We will write praise poems and odes, which comes from the Greek “aeidein” (to sing or chant). In J. A. Cuddon’s words, an ode is “a full-dress poem.” Full of fervor, we will consider the ode as an address to a person, event, object, or something even more ineffable. Along with writing our own odes, we will read traditional and contemporary odes from Ross Gay, Lucille Clifton, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, and more.
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.
