CRWR 4000.06: Advanced Creative Writing ‑ Poetry (full‑year)

Paths are made by walking. In this course, students will make their own paths in and out of their poems, establishing a disciplined writing practice that involves paying close attention to both the interior and exterior world, developing the ability to listen deeply and engage in the pursuit of imaginative thinking. The spirit of this class is based on participation and curiosity, of reach and attempt. This course is workshop based and the environment will be safe, accepting and respectful. Students will be expected to amass the technique and craft learned in earlier courses to begin the serious pursuit of poetry. A public reading will be scheduled at the end of the second term.
