Description

The focus of the course will be on generating new poetry and discussing it, via workshop. It is for students with a commitment to writing poetry and some workshop experience.

This workshop emphasizes discussion of issues related to poetry writing; specifically, our discussion of these issues will be in response to the new poems written and submitted by workshop members.

I state my definition in this roundabout way because I’d like to emphasize that my approach to the workshop privileges the discussion of the elements, techniques, and processes of writing poetry over the goal of setting out to fix a specific poem.

Students will bring in poems for discussion weekly. Text will be a coursepack to be discussed first day of class.

Class Format:

To enroll in this course, students need to get on the waitlist and bring a 10-15 page portfolio of poetry to the first class meeting.
