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.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
Bill Carty has received fellowships from the Fine Arts Work Center, Artist Trust, and Hugo House. He is the author of Huge Cloudy (forthcoming, Octopus Books). His poems have appeared in the Boston Review, Ploughshares, Iowa Review, and other journals.
