MOON SCHOOL is month-long generative writing workshop for writers at all levels. Each week for four weeks, participants will meet with Dr. Mindy Nettifee and Brian S. Ellis to explore new writing and editing practices and discuss practical revolutionary perspectives on how poetry and performance can both reveal and shape the world. All workshops will be recorded and available to watch again or asynchronously.

The first two weeks, while the moon is on the wax, Mindy will focus on rituals of generation, from locating inspiration to tapping altered states of creative flow. The second two weeks, as the moon wanes, Brian will focus on approaches to honing and editing that help crystallize poems into final form, ready to be shared both on the page or performed aloud. Over the arc of the workshop we should see the full cycle of a poem from first spark in the creative dark to full madness and bloom. Take this workshop if you feel an impulse to—that’s future-you calling.

Course Begins: Sunday, March 14th, on the heels of a Pisces new moon 
Dates: Sundays March 14, 21, & 28 + April 4
Time: 3:30-5:00 pm PST / 6:30-8:00 pm EST*
Cost: $150
