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.

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.
