Writing Associative Verse

How do we begin to access our subconscious minds—the land of dream where the bizarre surfaces to surprise and delight? We’ll read Franz Wright, John Ashbery, Paul Celan, and others whose work jumps and leaps. Course includes discussion, prompts, and ample time to workshop poems. To explore the process of associative writing, we’ll employ strategies that enable the reception and articulation of what is perhaps any poet’s better half: his or her subconscious.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
