Writing to the Moon and Back

“The moon making a poem possible… what can we say about that?” -Mary Ruefle All Levels | 50 years after the lunar landing, let’s look toward the moon anew. This generative class, open to all genres, features eclectic writing experiments inspired by scientific, esoteric, and mythological ideas about the moon to jump-start our creativity and playfully upend cliches. The class will culminate in a small folio of new lunar-infused work. Most writing will take place in class with some observation homework; there will be an optional conference with the instructor at the end.
