To be determined


This workshop is for poets who already have a body of work (however large or small) and who are currently working on a project or collection. It presupposes two things: that poetry as a project is as rigorous an undertaking as more typically scholarly undertakings; and that participants have an interest in theoretical concerns and see certain philosophical and/or social issues as relevant to poetry and to the particular technical problems (praxis or craft) that any work entails.

To be considered for admission to this course, please submit 5 photocopied pages of your poetry, along with an application form, to Professor Hejinian's mailbox in 322 Wheeler BY 4:00 P.M., TUESDAY, APRIL 19th, AT THE LATEST.

Be sure to read the paragraph concerning creative writing courses on page 1 of this Announcement of Classes for further information regarding enrollment in such courses!
