Poetry Writing Workshop

Course No. LLC 211W  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Susan Grimm

This class will focus on the creation, revision, oral and visual presentation of poems. Because good writing requires deep reading, we’ll also be reading and responding to poems from an anthology throughout the semester. Students will be required to keep a journal that responds to anthology poems in the form of imitation poems, commentary, letters to the poets, or illustrations. Class time will be spent doing writing and revision exercises, small-group work, discussing poems from the anthology, playing with various aspects of poetry, and workshopping poems written in class. The final project will entail creating a chapbook of poems written during the semester. Fulfills Humanities/Cultural Studies distribution requirement. Creative Writing Concentration course. Writing-intensive course.
