Section 1: Monday and Wednesday 5:00-6:15 PM

Professor: Brian Morrison

“Poetry Writing” is a course on crafting and revising poetry. You will write a number of exercises as well as more formal work. The core of this course is comprised of three parts: analyzing and discussing poems by published poets, constructing your own poems, and politely discussing poems written by other students in the course with you. We will focus heavily on prosody, though this will include free verse and invented form. The goal is to equip you with the necessary tools to read poems in order to learn from them for your own ends as a writer in the current world.
