Writing Pandemic Poems for Lament, Solace, Testimony (ZOOM)

All Levels | Drawing on short readings from writers who have addressed pandemics — Giovanni Boccaccio, Daniel Defoe, Albert Camus, and writers addressing our predicament now — we will write poems to report personal experience, interrogate the public narrative, honor what’s lost, and celebrate what’s been clarified. The pandemic has hit the reset button on our individual lives, our communities, and our nation. Pandemic poems can reframe what we now know we need, don’t need, and must envision. This class includes a lunch break.

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.
