Poetry Writing Workshop

ENGL 113.301
instructor(s):
R 1:30-4:30

This poetry writing workshop examines various ways in which poets name and describe the world. How does poetry differ from other kinds of writing? Each week, workshop participants will read and discuss examples of poetic strategies old and new, formal and conceptual (including works of John Milton, Khadijah Queen, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, and Caroline Bergvall), and will present their own writing, sometimes generated from assignments. We will also engage regularly with breaking poetry news.
