Four Poems in Four Weeks [Carolyne Wright]
Write four poems (or more!) in four weeks. We’ll focus on four types of poems: praise, narrative, imitation, and elegy. Also, we’ll deepen our knowledge of contemporary poetics by trying strategies such as erasure, fractals, and poetic palimpsests. Readings, discussions, and instructor feedback will guide the writing process from drafting to revision. You will strengthen and hone your craft as well as widen your inspirational spaces. The instructor will hold an individual meeting with each course participant.
