All Levels. “Who shouted with glee / when the color blue was born?” (Neruda). As we submerge into watery gray, awaken your senses and writing life! Using COLOR as our 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, with a slant toward poetry. Optional feedback conference at end. Most writing will be done in class with some light homework.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
