8-Week: Online Betwixt, Stretched, Of-the-Moment—Hybrid and Unexpected Forms (Asynchronous)

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

A new session welcoming new and returning Betwixters, this class will explore more ways of mixing things up—poetry and prose, text and image, one extreme and another, abstract and concrete, old and new, fact and fiction, constraint and freedom. Weekly reading packets and a book or two will get us going. This is a generative and active class, where you will build up your file of drafts rather than critiquing and receiving critiques.

About Our Online Classes:

We use an online platform called Wet Ink. This platform allows you to post comments and critiques directly to the authors’ works (for 8-week workshops). You can also view deadlines, track revisions, and watch video or listen to audio. At the end of the class, each student will receive an email that contains an archive of all their content and interactions. Everyone who participates in an online workshop will also become part of the ongoing Lighthouse community within Wet Ink, where you can share and receive exercises and calls for submissions. Stay in touch with your fellow students (if you like) via the Lighthouse community when the class has ended.

By the end of the day on the Monday that class begins, you’ll receive an invitation to join Wet Ink. There are no browser requirements, and Wet Ink is mobile-friendly. If you have any questions about the technical requirements, please email [email protected].

Students are welcome to enroll up until the Friday of the starting week.
