Hybrid Writing Along The Seam

February 17-March 24, 2021
Wednesdays, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time (six sessions)

$285

Consider the sphinx: head of a woman, haunches of a lion, wings of a bird. A creature powerful and wise enough to guard the seam between the sacred and the secular, life and afterlife. Hybrid forms of writing possess a similar power, harnessing two or more established forms to create something new, unique, and potent. Hybrid forms are actually ancient, preceding all genres — genres are forms into which the hybrid was broken. When we reunite these forms, we welcome new, transformative forces into our work. In this course, we will consider various hybrid literary forms: lyric essay, poetic memoir, prose poetry, flash fiction, and visual/verbal hybrids. We’ll look, too, at forms meant for digital platforms that are especially relevant and exciting in our current cultural moment, such as videopoems, podcasts, and animated works. We’ll consider the unique powers of each of these hybrid forms and see how they can expand and invigorate our writing.
