EN 205 Writing Poetry: 3 semester hours
This workshop allows students to explore together the fundamentals of the craft of poetry. Students will identify the attributes that make poetry a unique and expressive art form, and will become familiar with diverse forms, subject matter, and styles by reading the work of established and emerging poets. Students will compose original poems, participate in peer workshops, and create a final portfolio of their work. This course will enable students to be more aware of their own writing processes and to access a breadth of strategies for composition, collaboration, and revision journeys. Guided writing activities and model texts will provide a wealth of inspiration and ideas, alongside students’ own writing goals and interests. Prerequisite: One course selected from the core composition courses or equivalent.
