In this class students will write poems focusing on voice, texture,
form, sound, and accuracy of intention. There will be assignments
and exercises that experiment with a variety of structures and
strategies. We will most likely visit the art museum, the Lilly
library, listen to music, watch some films, and read several
collections of poetry and critical essays by poets. Much of class
time will be devoted to discussion of the poems you have written.
To apply to this class, place five poems and a list of creative
writing classes you=ve taken in my mailbox in BH442 at least one
week before your registration day. Submit your poems as soon as
possible, as places will be filled as people apply. A list of those
admitted will be posted on my office door (BH452) and a copy will be
given to the Creative Writing Secretary and the Undergraduate
Secretary in BH442. As soon as you are admitted, obtain an on line
authorization to register from one of the secretaries. You must have
an authorization prior to registering for the course.
