Course Catalog

Master Class in Poetry

The aim of this poetry workshop will be to help the students, regardless of age or previous experience, to work toward writing the best poems they can write. The instructor will offer examples from poetry of the past and present and will ask the students to bring some examples from their own reading, but the main work will be critiquing the students’ own poems. The instructor will try to help reinforce the connections between sound, rhythm, and meaning, and will make a number of suggestions about working methods, revision, and self-criticism.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
