ENGL 281 - Intro Poetry & Prose Workshop
  In this workshop, you will read, write, and revise your own poems and short prose pieces, and produce a short manuscript of new work. How to discover what you have to say? We will study a wide variety of published poems, and write and discuss our own poems and quick prose, paying close attention to matters of form, image, figure, rhythm, voice, audience, the “plot,” and more. A poem can offer a bare and radical sense of voice and experience—it’s always a new experiment. This workshop will open you to new writing forms, help you analyze and revise your poems and creative prose, and link you with other writers. Besides writing poems, we will analyze poems from a writer’s perspective; memorize single poems; give a class reading; and meet visiting poets. This workshop is for those who have done some creative writing, or who want, finally, to get started.
