Open Enrollment Class Registration - Brolaski

Visions and Visionary Poetics with Julian Talamantez Brolaski

This class will explore the practice of visionary writing. ‘Vision’ is easily subject to metaphorization— ‘I see’ for ‘I understand,’ ‘vision’ for aspiration or future goal—but here the class will explore the concept quite literally. Participants will read the works of prophet-seers: Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, William Blake, Black Elk, Hannah Weiner, and others, writers who have had dream visions, spiritual visions, drug-induced or psychotic visions. Participants will explore ways of seeing beyond ordinary reality and cultivate techniques to render these variant aspects of consciousness into our poetry.

Class enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. Since many classes fill quickly; we encourage you to enroll early. Your enrollment is complete when full payment for tuition has been received.
