Looking to enrich your understanding of contemporary poetry, and reflect it in your own writing?
Each week, this class offers a writing prompt that puts our drafts in conversation. The guiding muse will be selections from The FSG Poetry Anthology, edited by Jonathan Galassi and Robyn Creswell. We’ll use curated selections to anchor a craft discussion at the start of each class; students can expect to workshop two poems in class, and to receive the instructor’s written feedback on up to three poems.
No formal expertise is required, but familiarity with workshop environments is encouraged.
