Description

This is a workshop, a studio class. The principle is immersion.  Students will be expected to be reading poetry all the time, writing it, giving and receiving feedback on the drafts of  poems you will be turning in weekly. Attendance, therefore, is crucially important. So you will be submitting weekly drafts of poems or of parts of long poems--if that happens to you--and posting your revisions on the course website and submitting at the end of the semester a chapbook of at least ten poems (or the equivalent, if you find yourself writing long), a table of contents, and a brief prose statement of poetics. You'll be graded on attendance and on the effort reflected in your weekly work and final presentation, not on the workshop leader's aesthetic judgements, should he have judgements.

Only continuing UC Berkeley students are eligible to apply for this course. To be considered for admission, please electronically submit 5 of your poems, by clicking on the link below; fill out the application you'll find there and attach the writing sample as a Word document or .rtf file. The deadline for completing this application process is 11 PM, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26.

Also be sure to read the paragraph concerning creative writing courses on page 1 of the instructions area of this Announcement of Classes for further information regarding enrollment in such courses.
