This poetry workshop will focus on writing students’ original poetry. Writing will include experimentation with established as well as invented poetic forms and less formal structures. Students will also develop critical response skills and vocabulary. Students will be responsible for actively participating in class discussions and exercises, writing weekly poems, and regularly presenting their poems to the class. A reader’s journal and a portfolio of original poems will be submitted at the semester's end.
Students should budget for photocopying.
