English 100PA - Spring, 2013

Creative Writing: Advanced Poetry

Class Information

Instructor: Glazner, Greg
Time: R 4:10-7:00
Location: 248 Voorhies

Description

    In this advanced poetry workshop, students will write and revise original poetry; read, critique, and discuss the work of other students; and read and discuss published poetry as well as prose on the writing of poetry.

    Class goals involve the strengthening of individual poems as well as the expansion of the student’s overall capacities as a writer, critic, and reader. Each student will have original work discussed three or more times.

Grading

    Grading will be based on poems submitted to the workshop, contributions to class discussions, written comments on peer manuscripts, the completion of technique assignments, and a final portfolio of at least ten pages of original poetry to include three revised workshopped poems.
