Speculative Poetry with Rachel Swirsky

Breaking the RulesNext classes are Saturday, December 9 – 9:30-11:30 AM or Wednesday, February 7, 2018, 4-6 PM. (Each class is a separate session.)

Poetry requires intense linguistic control. Every word matters. Whether you’re a poet who wants to create fantastical verses, or a prose writer who wants to learn the finely tuned narrative power that poetry can teach, you’ll find something in this class.

Over the course of a few brief lectures, peppered with plenty of writing exercises, we’ll discuss some common forms of speculative poetry, and the challenges they represent. I’ll also send you home with market listings, and lists great authors, poems, and books to pick up to continue your journey.

Join award-winning speculative fiction writer Rachel Swirsky for a workshop in which she teaches you how to make your poetry speculative.

Classes are taught online via Google hangouts and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required.

Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues).

To register for this class, send an email with the following details:

  • The email address that you use for Google stuff
  • Which class or classes and the dates
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, or some other means.

Upon receiving that, I will send you an invoice.

Important! Remember every class has several free Plunkett scholarships for students who could not otherwise afford the cost. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost, mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less.
