Poetry I

Poetry I is designed for poets of all experience levels as an opportunity to introduce (or reintroduce) themselves to elements of poetry craft. We will read this year's Best American Poetry anthology as a way to discuss contemporary poets and consider poetic traditions. We will also combine writing prompts and readings with an introduction to the basics of the workshop model, providing an opportunity for class members to share their own work.
