Orion Online Poetry Writing Workshop with Taneum Bambrick

July 2 - August 6


The course

Poetry and Spirals
This poetry course will fixate on poets, theorists, and writers who engage with slime as material and concept: the slipping genres, the gooey self. In addition to keeping a weekly dream diary (which we will call slime time), we will read and write work that interacts with subjects such as plant and animal life (snail love), borders and boundaries, identity fluidity, and more! 

The duration: This course meets over six consecutive Tuesdays from 5-8 pm ET, from July 2 -through August 6. 

Application period: April 1-20
