ENGL 382
Advanced Workshop in Poetry Fall 2024
Division I

Class Details

As an advanced poetry workshop and reading seminar, this class assumes that its members are already practicing poets with a grounding in the foundational techniques of poetry writing. We will work in a spirit of shared experiment, pushing our inquiries into this art form further and developing a community of writers engaged in collaborations on and off the page. Readings and assignments will investigate different impulses–formal, textural, tonal, thematic–in poetry across time. I will ask you to inhabit, query, stretch, and even resist these impulses as you develop your own poems. My hope is that through sustained interaction and collaboration with each other, your writing will undergo a variety of productive evolutions.
