Introductory | The lyric essay exists in an undefined space between poetry and nonfiction. By breaking the rules of genre and experimenting with hybrid forms, students in this class can expect to breathe new life into stagnant essays, develop poetic lines into thoughtful arguments, and take their nonfiction to new creative places. In addition to writing prompts and workshops, we’ll explore the genre through excerpts and essays from John D’Agata, Eula Biss, Sarah Manguso, and Claudia Rankine, among others.
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.
