Dream Poetics: A Generative Workshop

with Wendy Chen

September 30th from 2PM to 4PM ET via Zoom

How can dreams serve as the basis for new work? How can the study of dream logic become a tool for us as writers in our artistic practice? In this course, we’ll close-read several poems that engage in dream poetics by authors such as Jackie Wang, Hélène Cixous, and Edgar Garcia. We will then use dreams as material to generate poems through several exercises and prompts.
