Course Description

Whether you are a story-teller, playwright, novelist or poet, stepping outside of personality liberates the imagination. This course traces the “persona” tradition from ancient literature to modern work by poets from diverse communities, from the Bible to Rita Dove. Write new work as a prophet or muskrat, limited only by your willingness to play!
