Poetry Workshop

This advanced creative writing course focuses on the genre of poetry. Students read a wide variety of poetry with an emphasis on craft, intention, effect, and varieties of meaning and technique. Students practice artistic observation, description, figurative language, and the craft of poetic structures as they build a portfolio that reflect various shapes, styles, and approaches to the genre. Students participate effectively in a workshop setting by responding orally and in writing to the work of their peers. Prerequisite: 211. May be repeated once for credit. AE
