Fixation & Poetry Workshop

The Purple We See When We Close Our Eyes

MONDAYS | MAR 29-APR 26 | 6:30PM | @ZOOM
$120 for all 5 classes (+$5 Service Fee) | $25 for drop in (+$3 Service Fee) | (April 19th class will not be a drop-in)

Let's talk about the shapes the sun leaves behind, the imprints of what is so bright we are told not to look. This course is about accessing what makes us feel most in our aliveness, what brings out that childlike excitability in us. Whether examining our obsessions through pop culture, history, personal narrative, or fantasy, each week writers are invited to explore a topic deeply meaningful to them, in order to find connectedness and hope in writing. 

Are you still practicing Britney Spears dance moves in your room? Did you never get over the death of that character in your favorite sci-fi novel? Now is your chance to write into the obsessions, rather than shying away from it! Explore writers like Safia Elhillo, Anne Carson, and Carmen Maria Machado. This course is designed to be accessible to writers of all genres.

$120 Class Pass for all 5 classes (+$5 Service Fee)
Members get $10 off Class Pass (not including service fee)

 $25 for drop in (+$3 Service Fee) | (April 19th class will not be a drop-in)
