Primary Instructor:

This semester we will read and discuss poetry of all kinds, focusing on the elements of the craft that will help us to write our own poetry. The main focus of the class will be on this: the writing of your own, new poetry. This will include the exploration of subject matter, the development of a style, and the writing of poems in received forms. You will be asked to bring in poems to share with the class, and to read and comment on the poetry of other class members. You will also meet with me in conferences, and read a great deal of contemporary poetry. Please come with a passion for and interest in poetry, and we'll have a lively, productive, and poetic semester.
