Open Enrollment Class Registration - Dameron

Poetic Narratives: Writing the Varied and Whole Story with DéLana R. A. Dameron
“We tell this story every year,” Natasha Trethewey says in “Incident" from her prize-winning collection Native Guard. What happens when you tell and re-tell a story? How does the story sound from multiple perspectives? How was the story told five years ago? Yesterday? Today? How will you tell it, and through what lens, tomorrow?

Over the course of six weeks, participants will investigate a topic or idea of their choosing through six different poems or poetic investigations, exploring the many ways one story can be told, explored, and discovered through a series of poems. We will consider at exemplar poem-series by poets Rita Dove, Cornelius Eady, Anne Sexton, Nikky Finney, Sharon Olds and more.
