Writing in the Field

Frank O’Hara walked the streets of Manhattan on his lunch break, sometimes stopping to type the beginning of a poem at the Olivetti showroom, which eventually brought about Lunch Poems. We will read and study the prose and poetry of place and then experiment with gathering sounds, words, and images from the streets and city around us via walking observation. Through writing prompts and exploration, we will write the poetry of the everyday.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
