Create amazing poetry.
Explore poetry in this small group workshop dedicated to experimentation in a wide range of forms, from page to performance. Whether you’re into sonnets or slam, our teaching-poet will help you write poems for voice or for the page. You’ll discuss work by contemporary poets, write lots of new work, and participate in constructive critique aimed to help you prepare a small collection of poems worthy of publication.
Focii for Student Learning:
- Analyze model texts’ use of language and structure to think, talk, and write about what makes a successful poem
- Consider writing in the larger context of contemporary poetry
- Write a substantive group of poems!
- Sharing work with peers out loud and in writing to learn how to participate in critique and collaborative revision
- Articulate your project and your vision of what it means to be a writer
