Class Name

The modern Pantoum is a poetic form that incorporates rhyme and the repetition of lines. Contemporary poets including Natalie Diaz, Evie Shockley, and Natasha Trethewey (former Poet Laureate of the United States) have written pantoums. Like a dance, the poet moves four steps forward and two steps back. Students will write a pantoum each week to better explore the possibilities of this poetic form. We will also read published pantoums and discuss how repetition adds to meaning. Students' poems will be shared with the class and critiqued each week. Bring pen and paper to the first class.

Note: UNM Tuition Remission eligible under Personal Enrichment.

Spontaneous co‐writing is a technique developed by our instructor to engage your creative mind through stream of consciousness writing, initiated by the prompt of a word. In this class you will use paper and pen to record your thoughts, memories and analysis of those thoughts based on the chosen word. Through reading these thoughts out loud we become our own authority. Scribbling with pen and paper and listening for what others write will take you on a journey of new learning.

Note: This class meets for 1 hour over 6 weeks. Personal Enrichment ‐ Tuition Remission. Class meets on Wednesdays, Start date is incorrect in the catalog
