Poetry II

We will broaden our poetic horizons through in-class reading and writing and discover our own personal writing goals, be that mastering a craft skill or publishing a poem in a literary magazine. We will also be reading each other’s work with a keen eye, not only to improve these individual poems, but also to acquire the invaluable skill of revision as something that can be practiced on your own outside of workshop.
