About the Class:
What does contemporary poetry look like? What makes a poem successful? How do we write for a fast-paced, ever-changing world? Both a survey of contemporary poetry and a generative workshop, this course will use poems from some of today’s most recognized established and emerging writers to help shape and develop our poetic vocabularies, expand our notion of the poem, and push the boundaries of what 21st century literature can be. In addition to close reading, analysis, and discussion, each poem will be used as a model or prompt for students’ own work, which will be critiqued, revised, and workshopped over 8 weeks. The course will also include tips and tricks for submitting and publishing work in print and online literary journals. Authors include Mary Szybist, Ocean Vuong, Joy Harjo, Tiana Clark, Jamaal May, and more. Writers of all backgrounds and skill levels are welcome.
