Seasonal Affective: Generative Workshop

All Levels | Brighten your writing palette and vivify your heart. Together we’ll harness all the ways the seasons affect us to write through the dark and back into light again using science, memory, experiment, and seasonally affected texts (such as Stevens, Glück, Dove, O’Hara) for inspiration. You’ll leave with new writing drafts and fresh experiments to try again at home. Slanted toward poetry but open to all genres. Let this generative class be the energizing lightbox to your notebook’s doldrums.

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.
