ENG 211 - Creative Writing: Advanced Poetry


ENG 211 Creative Writing: Advanced Poetry/Workshop: While a significant part of the class will be dedicated to exploring each student’s poetry through a constructive workshop approach, this course also requires in-depth critical feedback in every class and a series of annotations that address elements of craft.  We will look closely at the work of established poets, especially contemporary poets, and trace lineages and influences from particular poets’ work back to their roots.  In addition to assigned readings and exercises, a new poem a week is expected. As the semester progresses, students will experiment with revision and create a portfolio of poems representing their best work. This course requires completion of ENG 107 or permission of the instructor. For undergraduate English majors and minors, this course satisfies the Genre (C-1) requirement. For undergraduate Creative Writing minors, this course fulfills the advanced requirement.

Prerequisites: ENG 107 or permission of the Instructor.

Anticipated Terms Offered: Annually
