Sky Ladders & Moon Voyages: Poets in Space

Is poetry the future of communication between this world and others? In what ways do you already hold the possibilities of a more complex cosmos? In this remote 3-hour workshop (spread over three Sundays), we’ll go on a virtual and poetic voyage together. Drawing inspiration from poets like Tracy K. Smith, Monica Ong, Mai Der Vang, Beth Bachmann and more, we’ll dive into different themes such as space travel, the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy. This class is meant to challenge, inspire, and empower the way you see yourself and your poetry against the much larger scope of the universe. We’ll cover 1-2 poems each session that revolve around a scientific idea, followed by a guided, multi-part writing prompt to generate the most ideas of writing to take away from the course. Jumpstart your week via planetary poetics.

3 hours over 3 Sundays  |  April 16th, 23rd & 30th  |  6-7pm Eastern  |  $120 ($96 for Members)

All are welcome, space is limited. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Please email with any questions.
