This course is a workshop in writing poetry.  Students will write
and revise approximately one poem a week, usually an exercise poem
based on the reading.   Each workshop will begin with the discussion
of a model poem from one of the required books.  No tests or exams,
but students will submit work to a magazine.  No auditors.  Students
must make photocopies of their poems for everyone in the class.

Text:  Five books of contemporary poetry to be announced.

Approval of instructor is required for admission.  To apply, submit
five poems and a list of creative writing classes you’ve taken (and
names of instructors) to my email address: stanton@indiana.edu  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 Creative Writing Secretary in BH442 for an on-
