Poetry Writing & Revision
This is a seminar in the writing and revision of poetry. You will learn poetic forms, meter, and revision strategies from the works of Wanda Coleman, Yoko Ono, CA Conrad, Shane McCrae, Russell Atkins, and RD Liang. These lessons will be applied in a Critical Response Process workshop. By the end of the class, you will produce eight poems and develop new writing strategies.
