Those Days of Being Wild

Those Days of Being Wild

What solitary night walks and “one-minute friends” could unleash a new poetry of the senses? When the DJ could not save your life that night, what downpour stopped you dead as you could not escape old heartbreak to reach new catharsis—yet knowing you would only to do it all over again? In this generative, seven-week online workshop, we’ll explore the joys and sorrows of reckless decisions and sunrise rebellions that led us wonderfully astray, far from “true” love and common sense. We’ll re-center the narrative of “the love story” in favor of staking our words on the best worst decisions of relationships and near-misses. We’ll read work from poets such as Carl Phillips, Esperanza Hope Snyder, Adrienne Su, Natalie Diaz, Caroline Bird and more. Class sessions will meet synchronously via Zoom every Thursday, and assignments, poems and critiques will be shared via Wet Ink.
