Primary Instructor:

This is a class not only on the craft of writing but also the craft of thinking visually about writing. Theoretically, we will approach poetry through a lens of cinematic analysis. On a craft level, we will explore film and examine ways in which artistic problems can be solved on a visual level, and, ultimately, translated into the forms and craft of poetry. At the same time, we will examine ways in which the disciplines of poetry and film can inform each other. This is a class for those who want to write better poems, but it’s also a class for those who want to know more about film how film has influenced the writing of poetry.
