Writing the Avant-garde Lyric

In this course, we will be writing in the tradition of modern avant-garde lyric poetry, from writers like Gertrude Stein and Louis Zukofsky to the contemporary poetry scene of Aditi Machado, Tracie Morris, and others. The class will focus on writing exercises that encourage writers—through experimentation and play—to expand their ideas about the possibilities of language, composition, and form. By the end of the course, writers will have written a number of experimental lyric poems in different styles.
