Fall 2016 Topic Seminar: CWRT 326: Intermediate Poetry Workshop

(1) CWRT 326: Intermediate Poetry Workshop, Unique Robinson, Monday 1-3:45p, B110

In this poetry writing course, we will collectively engage in poiesis—the process of making—by balancing tradition with innovation, curiosity with critical thinking, and discipline with play.   As a foundation for our writing, we will consider 20th and 21st century poems and poetry collections (with occasional poems from other time periods), along with a few works in other mediums.  In addition to the readings, students will be responsible for generating new poems each week, for giving one another nuanced, well-considered feedback in weekly workshop sessions, and for attending a least one literary reading over the course of the semester.  Students will also submit final portfolio of polished poems from over the course of the semester, which will include a critical summary of their revision choices.
