Drink some damn fine coffee and create new poems in response to the latest season of Twin Peaks.
* This course will take place on video-conferencing platform ZOOM *
Maybe you’ve watched it once and were intrigued by the pace of Dougie’s clownish adventures. Maybe you’ve watched it twice for Laura Dern alone. Maybe you’ve watched it ten times and are convinced it’s the greatest piece of television ever made. Either way, you definitely want a whole day of talking about Twin Peaks: The Return and writing poetry inspired by it.
We’ll spend the day on zoom, in the comfort of our own homes, watching clips, discussing them, and using them to write lots of new poems. We’ll look at other poems that feel Lynchian too, in order to uncover their secrets and steal them for our own. We’ll think about dreams, atom bombs, Kyle MacLachlan and the fundamental nature of reality.
Although you’ll only need to have seen The Return to do this course, we’ll assume everyone has seen all three seasons plus Fire Walk With Me, so come prepared for spoilers if you haven’t. Please BYO coffee and a golden shovel.
1 full-day Zoom session, running 10.30am – 4.30pm (GMT) on Saturday 19 November 2022.
