The Senior Seminar in Poetry is designed for poetry students who excel in a collaborative small-group environment (6-12 seniors) where they work together with other poetry majors. In the Senior Seminar, students critique, complete, shape, and revise a portfolio of work in poetry culled from their previous writing courses, with the opportunity to write new work that helps to complete the portfolio's artistic goals. This seminar is community-based, as the class collaboratively selects critical and creative readings that relate specifically to its members' writing projects. In engagement with these readings, as well as student writing projects, the class examines issues of craft, form, content, and process. In addition to developing a final revised portfolio (20-30 pp. for poetry, each student will submit a critical essay contextualizing her/his body of work.
