The Art of the Fragment: Writing alongside Carson, Dickinson, and Sappho

All Levels | In this class, we’ll draw inspiration from the late fragments of Emily Dickinson (now available in online archives); Sappho, as translated by Anne Carson, and Carson’s elaboration of a Greek myth, Autobiography of Red. We’ll create our own sheaf of fragments and go on to utilize fragments as blueprints for longer pieces. Expect weekly assignments, read-arounds, and instructor feedback.

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.
