Intro to Free Verse Poetry [Kristina Jipson]
With all of the “freedom” in free verse, how do poets decide what shape their poems will take? We will consider the various “forms” of contemporary free verse, with a focus on what constitutes a “line” in free-verse poetry. Students will be exposed to a breadth of examples of innovative contemporary poetry and be given exercises and prompts to help them develop and apply their own theories of the poetic line.
