Open Enrollment Class Registration - Dimitrov

$325.00

The page is a space for any transformation, ritual, or spell to occur. We will begin our class by taking Jack Spicer’s “Poetry as Magic” workshop questionnaire (which he employed in the Bay area in the 1950s) and learning about our ethics as poets while fully diving into the unconscious. How do you write about the self by looking at the world and away from the self? Is the imagination the most personal and unknowable thing we have? What is poetry’s relationship to the occult?

Price: $325.00

Open Enrollment Class Registration - Duplan

$325.00

What do research and documentation look like for poets? How, as poets, can we use research and documentation to not only improve as writers but also to be more conscientious artists and citizens? Drawing from artists and writers like Adrian Piper, Audre Lorde, Ronaldo Wilson, Charles Reznikoff, Layli Long Soldier and many others, we will each develop a toolkit of poetic research and archival methods. Most poems already do a certain amount of “internal research” as they inquire into the emotional worlds of their speakers.
