MFA Poetry Workshop

The course will focus on the writing of poetry from two perspectives-craft and process. Through discussion of their own and published poetry, students will explore how writers develop language, imagery, and verbal music through attention to structural and other details presented in the work. Students in the workshop will read recently published poetry, discussing what makes this work successful and how they, as writers, can learn from it, while writing and critiquing their own work in a responsible and constructive manner. Students will be expected to present either new work or revised work to the workshop each week.
