Creative Writing: Poetry

This course provides an introduction to the writing of poetry for students who may or may not have had prior experience. Students read poetry as a basis for learning to write it, and class discussion focuses both on assigned readings and on student work. Student writing is submitted weekly and is strengthened through in-class workshops, revision exercises, and portfolio compilations. Individual conferences with the instructor are required. Students are encouraged to explore issues of poetic form and content, developing knowledge about poetry while developing creative, analytical, and artistic skills.
