Cindy Baldwin describes poetic writing like “sipping something delightful as you read.” But is sipping too much dangerous? Virginia Woolf and Annie Dillard are poetic heroes known for their rich yet prose-heavy storytelling; their sentences unravel like balls of yarn. But can lyrical writing extend like a tiny thread? Of course. This class will challenge students to maneuver between excess and scarcity by dissecting passages written by Ocean Vuong, Saeed Jones, Kazuo Ishiguro, and others, as well as practice severing sentences not serving a passage.

North Idaho College encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the access provided, please email Jonathan Frey at jafrey@nic.edu in advance of your participation.
