When the Color Blue Was Born

All Levels | “Who shouted with glee / when the color blue was born?” (Pablo Neruda).

Awaken your senses and writing life using color as the prismatic approach. We’ll expand our synesthetic palette and experiment with unusual generative writing prompts across the rainbow to create a portfolio of new work. Our inspiration will pull from science, art, literature, and fresh observations, slanted toward poetry but open to all genres. Most writing will be done in class with some homework; optional feedback conference at end.
