Poetry III

In examining the language of contemporary poets, we learn new techniques to apply to our own work. Poetry III assumes a foundation of craft and elements of poetry; from here we’ll practice generative writing exercises to produce new poems. Students will participate in a supportive workshop in which their work is appreciated for what it is and creatively encouraged to grow. You’ll learn how to heighten the resonance in each poem you present, how to make conflicting elements work together to bring out the themes, and how to support yourself as you write and revise to make your best poems.

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

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
