English 290P - Winter, 2017

Seminar in Creative Writing of Poetry

Class Information

Instructor: Clover, Joshua
Time: T 12:10-3:00
Location: 120 Voorhies

Description

    It's a poetry workshop. We'll write poems almost every week. Sometimes assignments might be involved. Also we'll read a bunch of material which tries to think about how workshops work, how they came into being, why they are the way they are — toward thinking about our own workshop and our practice as teachers and participants both.

Grading

    Based entirely 100 percent on a) the presumption that all assignments are completed in a timely and responsible fashion, and b) how thoughtfully and carefully participants respond to each others' work and the assigned reading.
