This course serves as a further study of the writing of poetry. We
will workshop student writing, as well as study contemporary poetry,
in order to gain a sense of various methods of finding one¹s own way
with the word. Student writers are responsible for reading and
writing poems each week, and will complete a final portfolio with
revised versions of pieces written during the semester; students will
emerge with a broad sense of the possibilities of poetry, both their
own and in the world.

To apply to this class, place five poems. your e-mail address, and a
list of creative writing classes you’ve taken (with names of
instructors) to Bev Hankins, the Creative Writing secretary, in BH
442 at least one week before your registration day.  Submit your
manuscript as soon as possible, as places will be filled as people
apply–if you have a late registration date, apply at the beginning of
the period to reserve a space.  No places will be saved for late
registration.  I will contact those admitted to the class.  After you
have been approved, please see the Creative Writing Secretary or the
Undergraduate Secretary in BH 442 for on-line authorization. You must
have an authorization prior to registering for this course.
