Writing from the Outside with Rachel Levitsky

One aspect of poetry is movement in and out of the membrane that separates an interior from its exterior. We will investigate how poets utilize aspects of the 'outside' world to dialogue with and enter subterranean consciousness. Readings will focus on the work of the poets Rosmarie Waldrop, Marcella Durand, and John Ashberry. During each class, with more and less specific directions (exercises) from the facilitator, we will mine these poets' work for ways into our own mysterious interiors.
