This course is designed for writers of all levels interested in exploring the poetry and poetic teachings of Mary Oliver. By doing close readings, we’ll discuss and collectively define craft elements and techniques that reoccur in her work. In addition to doing exercises that apply these concepts to our own writing, students are encouraged to share their favorite Mary Oliver poems and advice, so we can build a communal reading list and learn from each other.
