Expectation, tension, and catharsis—these are states of being that horror films excel in representing. In this class taught by Eva, we will examine horror films and their associated imagery to discuss and write through our fears, nightmares, and hidden desires. Designed for poets but suttable for all writers and horror-buffs, this class is for those who want to identify and battle tthe monsters under their beds.
This recurring workshop, taught jointly by both Natalie and Eva, is about discovering what you can learn from randomness. The instructors will guide you through activities, both material and digitally-facilitated, that aim to disrupt your creative process through a variety of techniques. Throughout the class, you will have the opportunity to both generate new work and re-envision poetry in process. Students will take home a workbook with an overview of the class activities, links to online resources, and space for their new creations.
