Manuscripts in progress by course participants will provide students with ample reading materials.


This workshop/seminar is for poets who already have a body of work (however large or small) and who are currently working on a project or collection. Participants should be working toward furthering development of the project and toward the formulation of a theoretical understanding of its purport and the technical elements that are contributing to its success. Poetry is a capacious genre; for the purposes of this course, any corpus of writing that its author wishes to label “poetry” is poetry.
