This course is a workshop in writing poetry. Students will turn in
approximately one poem a week, usually an exercise poem based on the
reading, which will be discussed in class. Each workshop will begin
with the discussion of a model poem from one of the required books,
and each student will prepare a short presentation on a poetic form.
No test or exams. No auditors. Students must make photocopies of
their poems for everyone in the class.
Texts: Five books of contemporary poetry.
To apply to this class, place five poems, your e-mail address, and a
list of creative writing classes you've taken, in my mailbox 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 e-mail those admitted to the class. After you
have been approved, contact the Undergraduate Secretary in BH402 for
an on-line authorization.
