In this seminar we’ll work outside of and between forms and search for logics poetic or otherwise in our fledgling pieces, letting what emerges from things currently tangled, broken or uncollected be our guide toward form. We will assess efforts weekly and leave each class with a new set of keys to attempt to turn. And if we wind up with something sounding more like it wants to be an essay, we will hear where and how it sings to tune or compose anew.

Douglas A. Martin is the author of books of both poetry and prose, including the lyric narrative Your Body Figured. His work Outline of My Lover was adapted by the Forsythe Company for the live film Kammer/Kammer. He teaches poetry and fiction at Wesleyan University and in the low residency MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College.
