CRW 315P  l  Introduction to Writing Poetry

Instructor:  Hogan, G

Unique #:  35635

Semester:  Fall 2021

Cross-lists:  n/a


Prerequisites:  E 303C (or 603A), RHE 306, 306Q, or T C 303C (or 603A).

Description:  This is an introductory course for anyone interested in writing and editing poems.  This course seeks to give you the space to breathe as a poet, whether you are new to the art or practiced in it—and more importantly, it seeks to give you a community of other poets from which to learn.  Over the course of this semester, you will produce new poems weekly that we will go over in class together, providing edits, insights, and suggestions.  The role of this class is not to teach you how to be a poet or what kind of poet to be, but rather to expand the world of poetry to you!  You are all poets just by being here.  What matters is becoming the poet that you want to be—not what anyone else wants.  At the end of the course, you will turn in a cohesive portfolio of the poems you wrote this semester, including workshop drafts and edited drafts.

Requirements & Grading:  Attendance: 20%; Participation: 20%; Response Paper: 15%; Workshop Edits: 15%; Final Portfolio: 30%.
