All Levels. Emily Dickinson writes of our aural power as poets: “As all the Heavens were a Bell, / And Being, but an Ear.” This course focuses on the craft of sound in poetry, from Dickinson’s slant rhymes to Kevin Young’s blues rhythms to Lo Kwa Mei-en’s repetition and cacophony. We will be reading and writing our own poems, paying close attention to sound and meter. Prepare to read and write out loud.
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.
