Course Catalog

What If The Humans Stayed Home? (ZOOM)

Title has been corrected from print catalog.

Intermediate | Unusual and inspiring animal activity has been documented during this period of self-quarantine, some true and some sensationalized. In a recent New York Times article, author Helen MacDonald asks, “What is it that we are desperate to see in the natural world right now, and why?” In this four-part ecopoetry class, we will dig into these questions, generate new work, and read and discuss contemporary ecopoets already exploring their own fragile ecologies.

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.
