Poetry & the Image

Instructor(s): Lytton Smith
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.
Beginner Beginner

How can we catch, in words, the scenes we see about us or in the wilds of our minds? This course will explore the ways images—favorite artworks, cherished or found photographs, striking film scenes—can inspire our poems, and the techniques by which we might make poetry vivid for a reader. You’ll workshop poems, hone your revision skills, and think about publication venues to send your work, all while learning to see the world around you with new eyes.
