Poetry III assumes familiarity with talking about the techniques and methods of poetry, though not from any specific tradition or approach. A desire to deepen your engagement with writing and discussing poems is more important. We'll read some interesting poems and draw from them our own writing challenges. The course is geared towards poets who have taken workshops before, particularly those who are familiar with the process of putting poems up for critique and being expected to present revisions at the end of the course.
This class builds upon Poetry I and II, though neither class is a prerequisite. We encourage students to opt into classes at the level that is right for them.
ADDITIONAL CLASS DETAILS:
- This class includes:
- Workshop: students submit work for critique from the teacher and class.
- Feedback in class: Both peer and instructor feedback given.
- Work outside of class: 2-3 hours of writing or reading outside of class.

- December 18: Last day of Early Bird pricing
