All Levels | In this mixed-genre course, we will huddle together in the darkest time of the year to read, discuss, and experience the wisdom of words. We will also write and share our own ambitious explorations of the human condition—birth, death, faith, nature, epiphany, plague, war, ecstatic states, family, and other urgencies. We’ll look at work by Dante Alighieri, Octavia Butler, Teresa Avila, Christopher Okigbo, Nelly Sachs, James Hollis, Joy Harjo, Hafez, Rumi, Annie Dillard, R.D. Laing, Brecht, and more!
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.
