In this course, we will examine the intersection of creative nonfiction/personal narrative and poetry. Our discussion will raise questions regarding the two genres and how they can inform each other. As writers, we will dive into using both form and genre to investigate ways to develop and share our stories. As a cohort, we will walk through this intensive study to inform our own writing.

For the generative portion of this course, we will experiment with various methods and techniques to tell our stories.

This course expects an intensive reading of the assigned texts as well as avid contribution to the community of the classroom via class discussion and exercise participation.

Required Texts:
Deborah Miranda’s Bad Indians
Natalie Diaz’s Postcolonial Love Poem

Recommended Texts:
Ka Makani Pa’akai’s The Salt-Wind
Natalie Diaz’s When My Brother was an Aztec

**Note: Course texts are subject to change. Final text list will be available on the syllabus.

The course requires a minimum of three students to run. If we do not reach this minimum before the course starts, you will receive a notification and a refund.
