This workshop, focused around the students' own work, will provide an opportunity for continued growth as a writer and reader of contemporary poetry. Topics will include the possibilities of form; intentionality and meaning; the relationship between the reader and writer; and the oral/performative and visual qualities of poems. Each student will be workshopped three times, will respond to the work of both student colleagues and published writers, will maintain a journal, and will complete weekly writing assignments, all leading to a final portfolio. Students should budget for photocopying.
