Of What Future Are These, the Wild, Early Days? (w/Kyle Tran Myhre)

Poetry can speak truth to power, but it can also help us understand and activate our own power. In that spirit, this course will weave together two threads: science fiction as a genre for poets to explore, and the concept of “anthemic” poetry—writing that inspires, challenges, and helps us imagine a better future. What role can poets play in narrative-shifting work? How can our writing succeed not just at a poetry slam, or in a literary journal, but at a rally or political action? And how might science fiction provide a doorway into those questions? We will explore all this and more via examples, generative writing exercises, and discussion.
