Often we create a binary world of image-building, in which wildness is the enemy of perfection. We set out to find the “perfect” image to show our stories, thus shutting out the wildness in our minds. Yet it is in the wild space between our reaching toward the image and the actual image where a poem or story happens. In this generative class, we will push into our own wildernesses and toward precision in our images.
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.
