Tuesdays, June 5 – June 26, 2018

In this course, we will read and discuss these four books*:
In the Language of My Captor, by Shane McCrae
Ending in Planes, by Ruth Ellen Kocher
Urban Tumbleweed, by Harryette Mullen
M Archive, by Alexis Pauline Gumbs
*Included in registration price!
Over the four weeks of the class, we will focus on multiple readings of the poems in these four collections to see how meanings evolve. Tracking the evolution of the meaning within us will give us more creative ways to consider how a poem is at work.
