English 100P-1 - Spring, 2021

Creative Writing: Poetry

Class Information

Instructor: Gouirand, Rae
Time: MW 9:00-10:20


In this workshop, we will explore what sense and semblance mean to poetry and the poem, and to a range of living poets whose work directly engages the cultural and political conversations of our present moment. Students will read a diverse body of works in a variety of verse forms, develop and revise original poetry, and be challenged to investigate what the body of the poem offers right now.

Grading will be based upon weekly work submitted to the instructor and the workshop, contributions to in-class discussions, and a final portfolio. Class will meet synchronously during scheduled meeting times.
