Open Enrollment Class Registration - Henning

Attention to style and structure is very important to the writer of tiny fictions, just as it is to poets. That's why flash fiction and prose poetry are often described as borderline genres (between poetry and prose). In this class, you will write five poetic stories or narrative prose poems. Instead of working with the line, we will be working with the sentence and the paragraph. There will be assignments and examples from published writing and some theory.

By definition, archeology is the study of human history through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains. By definition, poetry is a similar pursuit: poets excavate sites (and sights), unearthing and examining artifacts in an attempt to understand humanity. In this way, we will consider memories, photographs, and personal geographies as artifacts in order to get at a specific moment in time. By digging beyond the surface and examining these moments, one can begin to make sense of both personal and public histories.

In her 2012 essay “A Sort of Leaning Against,” Maggie Nelson writes: “For a long time, I worried there was something wrong with me as a writer, because I leaned so heavily on the thinking and writing of others. And further, that instead of wanting to hide that leaning, my impulse has often been to showcase it, to make this thinking-with-others, this weaving of mine and others’ words, part of the texture of my writing.”

Literary Partners Program: Arte de Pajaros: Art of Birds - Poetry of Pablo Neruda

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973), the Nobel Prize–winning Chilean poet, has been called "the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language.” Nature is prominent in Neruda’s poetry, and Art of Birds (1966) celebrates the special beauty of the birds of his native land. At the same time, the poems reflect a broad range of mood and feeling through themes of migration, exile, solitude, nature’s cycle of birth/death/rebirth.
