Buddy Wakefield: Now the Future Swung

May 2021

Language that isn’t scared to shit itself

Starting May 9

  • Sundays @ 1:30 PM PST
  • May 9, May 16, May 23, May 30

Prepare to write like a fight, get punched in the blood, spit out the glitter, and get back up.

Buddy’s previous one-month courses have built on each other from one week to the next. For the May sessions, each week will be an entirely new tour through language that isn’t scared to shit itself, or go off the high dive, or teleport history back to the day words became hang gliders, or left a mouth for the first time, which, side note, was because of a stubbed toe.

The common thread in these discourses and discussions is that of a higher power. Yours. We will be speaking of, with, and into our higher powers as an absolute. If that doesn’t resonate for you, heads up.

WEEK 1 – How to Say Hello in Cellular
WEEK 2 – That’s Enough of That
WEEK 3 – Past, Perfect, Tense
WEEK 4 – Now the Future Swung
