Writing Poetry 1

2:30p 5:30 R

This workshop is for graduate students whose primary genre is fiction. We will consider in our discussions how poetic craft differs from the craft of fiction. We will read widely and discuss the concerns and scope of contemporary American poetry, but also take a historical peek to see where some of the current poetry comes from. Students will be expected to write one poem a week and provide written comments to their peers.
