MFA Craft Workshop in Poetry
This poetry writing workshop entails an intense focus on aspects of poetic craft. Subjects covered in this course may vary from semester to semester, but each semester will concentrate on one or more elements of the craft of poetry. This may include strategies in creating and deploying imagery; choices in creating line breaks; the study of received forms; methods of creating tone; and researching and managing large projects such as the book-length poem. Students will study and critique each others' work as models of various elements of craft, while studying the work of past masters of the genre.
