Don’t let the word “advanced” scare you! While not for beginners, if you are familiar with writing and reading poetry than this class is for you. Great Poet’s like Lucile Clifton, Mos Def, and Sylvia Plath attained their success through dedication to their craft and a deep understanding of the work of other artists. This course will expand your understanding of your own craft and highlight the importance of poetic analysis in improving your work. Students will explore various forms of poetry, practice writing in these forms, then develop manuscripts that will be written and revised throughout the course.
