All Levels | Who are the women in your family? What stories need to be told? How have these women helped you claim your place in the world, or what secrets might still be holding you back? We’ll explore the roles of these women in our lives and how they’ve shaped us. During class, we’ll use prompts to generate micro narratives (300 words or less) and prose poems, discussing how the movement between these two forms can strengthen the story you are trying to tell. Finally, we’ll consider how these pieces may be submitted individually or organized as part of a chapbook, memoir, or more extensive body of work.
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.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
