Where did the sky end before it had a name? Where did it begin? Where did you?
In this workshop we’ll explore the magic of naming, what is gained and what is lost when the unsayable becomes the said. You can expect example poems and discussions, some short readings on craft, and etymology and linguistic theory-inspired thought experiments and writing prompts, all designed to inspire you to explore the landscape of all that lives named and unnamed in you.
- Four 90-minute live classes
- Private course group for peer review
- Feedback and interaction with Sam Rush
