ENG 494: Advanced Poetry Writing


Prof. Kutchins 3 credits

          Having taken the prerequisite course, ENG 392, you are probably alight with poems and creativity.  Advanced Poetry Writing is a workshop-style course that will keep you going and further immerse you in the creative process, in the discipline of writing of your own poems, and in workshop conversations about your poems.  It will also train you further in how to offer critique of other people’s poems.  You will also continue to learn about poetic craft and form, and practice them to a greater degree than in the introductory poetry course.  And you will apprentice yourself to a Master Poet of your choosing in order to better experience how writers learn and grow from close readings of other accomplished writers.
