Join me and my fellow sestina troubadours for a SIX WEEK ONLINE class! If you want to explore the secrets of the sestina in an intense class, this is for you! Beginners welcome, advanced students encouraged! Delve deep into this special form as we 'walk the labyrinth' virtually to circle around the stanzas, teleutons and envoi of the sestina and all its variations. We will follow the fourteen exercises in my soon-to-be-released Sestina Playbook, which includes my sestinas, and also read and learn from lots of sestinas from other poets. Ample time each class for reading sestinas by others, using the exercises in the book (included) and time to write and share our own sestinas and variations. Book is included with class registration (and you can still order the book separately even if you aren't in the class).
You will be sent the zoom link upon registration. Handouts emailed each week and a week prior to the first class. Limit 12 students for individual attention from the instructor.
OPTIONAL after last class and only IF social distancing is lifted, we will coordinate an in-person labyrinth walk and sestina class reading at Jules' Poetry Playhouse in Placitas, NM. There will be, of course, social distancing rules in place. Date would be set during the last class depending on student availability and comfort. Obviously, this would only be for students in the local area. We could also set up a zoom class student reading for all after the last class (July 8). Also a sestina chapbook publication including all students in class as a record of our sestinas written in class will be emailed out on-line. There may be an additional charge if class decides to publish a print chapbook.
