Everyone is terrified of the blank page. Perhaps we are even more scared of it now during the pandemic. What is there left to say? What is even worthy of a poem or my time or my focus? The idea of writing is often harder than the writing itself. In this three-hour session, we’ll focus on prompts and exercises that get us generating new poems out of nothing. Starting small and moving outward. This class won’t focus on critiques! It will be based on simply restarting our engines and giving ourselves permission to write through unprecedented times.
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.
