To the Sciences!

This generative class will study the ways that poets look to the sciences to generate image, structure, and surprise within their poems. The class will combine readings of contemporary writers (Rae Armantrout, Tracy K. Smith, and more) with scientific documents to help you understand how and why poets use science as a means to expand the world’s mysteries. Open to all levels of poets, scientists, and poet-scientists.
