Toi Derricotte has said: “The job of the artist is not to resolve or beautify, but to hold complexities, to see and make clear.” In this class, students will share work and listen to and respond to it honestly and without judgment.
To the first meeting, students are asked to bring a short passage written by someone else about writing/being and a poem they would like workshopped (14 copies of each).
Starts Sun, Oct 14, 2-5 pm, $420
