What you'll learn in this poetry class:

This course will explore how we tell our stories through poetry, whether directly or slant, and ways we can be more adventurous, musical and honest.

Experience with poetry-writing will be expected. Students will be required to turn in a poem a week to be workshopped by the group.

Experience with reading poetry is also a must. Familiarity with the poetry that is being written and published right now is crucial to understanding, appreciating, and writing; students will be encouraged to share and discuss poems they have recently read. Also of crucial importance is revision. Few poets create masterpieces on the first draft. Workshops are a great place to learn how we might improve and to learn from each others’ successes and failures. Students will be expected to revise regularly; the last class will be dedicated to sharing these revisions.

Students are chosen by Lynn Melnick on the basis of a manuscript submission.
