Writing Poetry 2

2:30p – 5:30p T


This will be a standard poetry workshop.  For each workshop meeting,
students will write one poem and provide written, constructive
critiques of their peers’ poems.  We will also read five collections
of contemporary American poetry: Natasha Tretheway’s Native Guard;
Claudia Emerson’s Late Wife; Terrence Hayes’s Wind in a Box; Eugene
Gloria’s Hoodlum Birds, and Jack Gilbert’s Refusing Heaven.
Students will choose two of these books and write a professional
book review for each.  A portfolio of drafts and revised poems will
be due at the end of the semester.
