Poetry Writing

ENGL 113.301
T 1:30-4:30


A course for students who have had some experience writing poetry but who wish to improve the rhythm and expressiveness of their language, and who may want to see the things of this world in new relationships and, perhaps, with a broader vision. Students will be asked to write every week, and to discuss and respond to the works of classmates and established poets. A final portfolio of revised poems will be required at the end of the course.

Students interested in taking the class should submit three poems to Greg Djanikian, Department of English 119 Bennett Hall/6273. Also include your name, SS#, undergraduate class, and email address where you can be reached. Permit is required from the instructor.
