Description of Course

Students will be asked to present their own poems each week to be discussed during the workshop sessions. It is understood that in most cases students will rework their first draft to eventually come up with a final version of a poem. The instructor will ask students to comment either in oral or written form about the poems of their student colleagues. To have students become comfortable with the oral aspect of poetry, students will be asked to present an oral reading of their own poems and also poems of other contemporary poets. Those readings will be videotaped and consequently discussed during the poetry workshop sessions. One of the major aspects of the workshop will be to introduce students to the contemporary international poetry scene with specific reference to poems that have dominated the 20th and 21st century. Normally, there will be a public poetry reading at the end of the semester where students will have to present three or four of their own poems.



Requirements: It is essential that students participate in the discussions of each workshop session and prepare a selection of their own poems for a final project.
