Wanderlust: Distance and Intimacy in Poetry ($49)

Trek across the many landscapes of poetry and explore the worlds that inhabit the spaces of the page. How do you make the reader experience both the familiar and the unknown? Through readings and writing exercises, we will learn techniques to create intimacy, distance and lustful metaphors. Guided by poets such as Natalie Diaz, Ocean Vuong, Ada Limon and Adrienne Rich, your work will travel to unexpected places.

Yun Wei received her MFA in poetry from Brooklyn College and studied at Georgetown University and London School of Economics. She has been awarded second place in the Boulevard Poetry Contest and first place in the Geneva Literary Prizes. Her work appears in over 15 journals, including Brooklyn Rail, Michigan Quarterly, Shenandoah, Poetry Northwest and Wigleaf. Her debut novel is represented by Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary Agency. She works in global health in Switzerland, where she relies on chocolate and tears to survive mountain sports.
