Poetry Writing Workshop

ENGL 113.301
M 2-5

We will focus on student work, of course: students will write their own poems & read each other's carefully. But we will also focus on reading a wide range of contemporary & modernist work, both poetic and critical: the point will always be to extend the student's range & ambition. Students will be encouraged to write what they want & will be asked, in addition, to try various formal exercises in response to their reading.
Note: Students wishing to major in English *and* "concentrate" in Creative Writing should contact Greg Djanikian (
