What is the relationship between the personal and the political for our characters and our own work? How do we incorporate the vast competing scales of being—from the cosmic to the neural; from the macro to the micro; from totalizing abstractions like capitalism and democracy to individual emotions like greed and loneliness? What is the connection between scale and movement? What do we mean when we say a story moves, or that we, as readers, are moved? These are big, general questions but the fun will be looking at specific answers, specific techniques for utilizing scale in poetry and a couple of flash fiction pieces.

*This class is a large seminar (for up to 30 people).
