Reading the Oppens

All Levels | In this class we will read Mary Oppen’s recently rereleased memoir Meaning a Life alongside George Oppen’s poetry as a means for discussing the politics and poetry of the twentieth century. This class will combine reading, discussion, and prompts based on the Oppens’ work and lives. The focus of the class will be generating new poetry and/or prose.

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.
