Students may take "The Art and Craft of Poetry" two times.
In this workshop poets will focus on the foundations and intricate dynamics of poetry as a writer’s process. A weekly reading of a poem by each poet in the circle will serve as point of departure for discussion of the relationships of craft and expression. Each student will also briefly present a favorite poet/poem for the enjoyment and learning of the class. A final portfolio of poems is required at the end of the course.
