Poetry Writing

Course Overview

This poetry writing workshop explores identity and seeks to answer the question: How are you shaped (or not) by the community you live in? Our goal is to create a supportive online network of writers that uses language to discover unique and mutual understandings of what it means to be a global citizen from a local place. Students draft and revise poems, provide and receive frequent feedback, and read a range of modern and contemporary poets whose work is grounded in place. Sample assignments include audio and video recording, an online journal, study of performance poetry, peer video conferences, close reading, investigations into process and craft, collaborative poetry anthologies, and a class publication. All writers have the opportunity to send their work to international contests and publications.
