This class tends to fill early, but spots can open up as students' plans change. Interested students who cannot register because the course is at capacity should visit Student Services Online (SSOL) regularly to check for new availabilities.

The Poetry Writing Workshop is designed for all students with a serious interest in poetry writing, from those who lack significant workshop experience or training in the craft of poetry to seasoned workshop participants looking for new challenges and perspectives on their work. Students will be assigned writing exercises emphasizing such aspects of verse composition as the poetic line, the image, rhyme and other sound devices, verse forms, repetition, collage, and others. Students will also read an variety of exemplary work in verse, submit brief critical analyses of poems, and critique each other's original work.


All courses subject to change.
