Course Credit: 1
Advanced Poetry Writing: Looking Outward In this advanced poetry workshop, students will read and write poems that reckon with the larger world through poetic investigations of historical and contemporary concerns and events. Students will abandon the inward gaze by incorporating research, facts, documents, politics, and history into their poems. During the semester, students will read several exemplary poetry collections and create original work with writing prompts and exercises. Students will workshop original poems and provide constructive criticism, with the goal of generating several new pieces during the semester. Course texts include The Art of Daring by Carl Phillips, Holey Moley Carry Me by Erika Meitner, Wade in the Water by Tracy K. Smith, Whereas by Layli LongSoldier, Sycamore by Kathy Fagan, and poems by C.D. Wright, Camille Dungy, Phil Metres, and Claudia Rankine. Prerequisite(s): ENGL-16100; Or permission of instructor [AH]
