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 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.
