Gerard Manley Hopkins once wrote in a letter that he wanted his poetry to embody “more wreck and less discourse.”
Detour away from the well-worn routines of workshop in these dynamic sessions. Rather than laboring to finish or fix drafts, our sessions will be devoted to generative bursts, improvisational drafts, and provocative conversations about language, memory, and the future of what we create. We will seek to unsettle habits and to invent forms. Encounter a catalytic array of contemporary poems and translations, and play and revel in the mess.
Class meets on Sundays: March 29, April 5, 19, 26, May 3 and 10.
