E 341L • Poetry Workshop
11:00 AM-12:30 PM
This class, in a workshop format, offers further experience in reading, writing, and revising poetry.
There will be assigned readings (mostly handouts of the work of contemporary poets, and some from poets of other times and cultures) and specific written exercises, as well as poems to be worked on independently, more or less at your own pace.
Your written work will be used in class discussion, and you must at times provide enough copies for the entire class. Keep a file of all work handed out by others; and keep drafts of your own work. You should write helpful suggestions on the work of classmates, and pass these back to them. A final manuscript of your work (a minimum of 7 poems, including rewrites) will be due before the last class. (Exact date TBA.)
Work should be typed and proofread for spelling and typographical errors. Written copies will not be considered.
