CRW 205/830-Mark Strand wrote, "There is no happiness like mine. I have been eating poetry." In creative writing, reading a lot and writing a lot are essential in order to produce good work. In this introductory writing course, we will do just that. We will analyze mostly contemporary poets who use a variety of different writing styles in their poems as well as writing our own poems, practicing techniques on paper and in a workshop setting.
CRW 305/810-In this intermediate level poetry workshop, students will write, revise, and critique a number of poems throughout the semester. Reading assignments will focus on several single-author poetry collections, and some analytical writing is also required. We will also experiment with digital form. A final portfolio, including new and revised poetry, will be submitted at the end of the semester. CRW 205 is a prerequisite for this course.
