ENGL 0361 - Advanced Poetry Writing


Credits: 3

This upper-level workshop course in writing a chapbook, a 25-30 page collection of poetry, aims to help students fully understand how a poetry manuscript is written and compiled. The course will emphasize writing poems on a particular theme, idea, or concept, in a variety of forms and styles so they make a cohesive collection; on revising individual poems; and shaping the arc of the collection. Special attention will be given to submitting individual poems and the chapbook as a whole for publication in nationally distributed literary journals and presses. The class is structured as a studio workshop with mandatory individual conferences with the professor. Requirements include a public reading from the student’s chapbook and submission of work for publication in nationally distributed literary journals and presses.

Prerequisites: ENGL 0246  and ENGL 0346 .
