LALL 871 - Poetry Writing Workshop

3 credits
Students’ poems are discussed, criticized, revised, and improved. Principles governing the decision to change a poem in various ways, the study of poems by American and English poets, the reading of some criticism, and concentration on the basic principles of craft are all included. Theories involve sound, content, meaning, and purpose of student poems and of poetry in general. The poet’s sense of an audience also figures in the discussion.

Prerequisites LACR*102 or LACR*103
