bit small, and I suspect this will be a very special class. It’s an area of study that sure means a lot to me.
Eco-Poetics: Poems to Save the World
Instructor: Janie Miller in Capitol Hill← New Instructor!
Tuesdays 7-9 pm
March 26-April 30
I’m interested in the dash between eco and poetics, resting like a magnet between the study of ecology and the concerns of poetry. There’s room for magic in that dash, a space for poetry to give voice to all that is alive and mysterious in the nonhuman world. This is a critical time for the planet, and in this 6-week class we will study Eco-Poetics through conscientious reading and explorative writing. We will become witnesses to the ever-evolving land and its creatures. We will concentrate on poetic techniques to help release the magic in your lines. Several classes will be taught “plein air” style, taking our writing to several sacred areas of Seattle, other classes will meet traditionally. Classes begin just after Spring Equinox, Tuesdays from 7pm-9pm, March 26 – April 30.
