What is outside the formal properties of the poem? More forms! As writers, we bring forms of attention, memory, imagination, and ideas to the crafting of our poetry.
In this intensive course, you will study how poetic language emerges between what you personally bring to your poetry and the traditional and radical histories of poetry as an artform. Combining big ideas with granular sensory details, this course will help you think about and play with your perceptions as you explore multiple ways to create and edit your work.
If you are comfortable with the fundamentals and are looking to push your poetry further, this course offers readings, discussions, writing exercises and a workshopping environment where you can experiment and dig deeper in a supportive community of other writers.
