Direct Address: Writing New Poems with Emily Hunt
Oct 17, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$325
Six Thursdays, October 17–November 21
In this workshop, we’ll embrace the urgency, clarity, volition, and sensuality that can surface when we write to someone or something, rather than about, around, or in light of a subject. Taking inspiration from Bernadette Mayer, Lucille Clifton, Fernando Pessoa, Solmaz Sharif, Dara Wier, and others, we’ll ask, how do our voices change based on whom or what we address? What happens to diction, tone, and form?
Thursday, October 17, 6–8:30pm
Thursday, October 24, 6–8:30pm
Thursday, October 31, 6–8:30pm

Emily Hunt’s first full-length collection, Dark Green, was named a standout debut by Publishers Weekly and a “Must-Read Poetry Debut” by Lit Hub. This year, she released two chapbooks: Company, a collection of poetry, and Cousins, a book of photographic couplets.
