Spring Semester Senior Choice

In this semester-long course students will read and write poetry, with a focus on the creative process. Emphasizing classic and contemporary writing exercises, games, tricks, and practices, as well as using many different kinds of poetries and poetics as models for making our own work--this will be a course that focuses on process over product. As a theoretical base, we will look at scientific and cultural frameworks around creative practices, as well as theories of the poem and of language.
