Creative Writing: Poetry    1000-1050 MWF

This introductory creative writing course emphasizes the art and craft of poetry. Through intensive reading and analysis of contemporary poetry, we will learn how to identify, define, and apply literary devices to our own poetry. Since part of the writing process is the revision process, workshop will play a fundamental role in our course. In workshop, our poems will be read, critiqued, and evaluated with the goal of a polished manuscript being presented by the semester’s end. (Group 5)
