Readings introduce traditional, modern, and post-modern poetic practice emphasizing imagery, figurative language, voice, line, and other formal aspects of poetry. Notebooks track development of student writing from reading exemplary texts to drafting revision of original poems. Writing workshop format includes analysis of published poems and peer discussion and critique of student work. For final projects, students create chapbooks, thematically sequenced poetry collections. This is a communication-intensive course.

When Offered: Spring term annually.
