All Levels | This generative writing course uses the conceit of the map as a central metaphor for crafting new work and evoking place. The creation, crossing, and elimination of boundaries of language, place, and narrative will underpin writing prompts. Strategies designed to encourage new work and invigorate the revision process will provide opportunities to create new poems and bring a new lens to existing work. This class will include study of poets including Harjo, Gay, and Montilla.
