All Levels | Inspired by Mary Ruefle’s innovative book of essays Madness, Rack, and Honey, we’ll savor reading 1-2 chapters each week, then generate our own writing (poetry or prose) using in-class writing prompts that jump off Ruefle’s text. Whether you’ve read the book before or are coming to it new, you’ll leave this class with a passel of new drafts and some fresh creative approaches sparking off of Ruefle’s one-of-a-kind mind. Come curious and ready to experiment! Optional instructor conferences at end.
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.
