Students’ poems are discussed, revised, and improved. Poetic topics will be discussed in effort to give students the tools to make more educated and artistic choices. Students will be given assignments designed to stretch their writing, to practice writing in ways they have not yet tried. We will read and discuss entire books of poetry as well as individual poems in order to think about how to collect one’s own poetry into a book or chapbook. Students will leave with a polished 10 page manuscript of poems.
