All Levels | How can we honor the people and places we’ve lost? This course engages the elegy, a lament for the dead. Through generative writing exercises, reading, and discussion, we will sing of grief, honor, and hope in verse. We will read powerful elegies from Jack Gilbert, Kimiko Hahn, Gregory Orr, Kevin Young, Claudia Castro Luna, Cortney Lamar Charleston, and more.
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.
