Poetry Workshop
Spring 2023
Taught By: J. Mae Barizo
Section: A

CRN: 4364

Credits: 4

The New School Writing Program follows the workshop method of teaching: An experienced writer-teacher gives students guidance by focusing on their manuscripts and on the creative acts of revision and self-editing, both in the workshop and during individual conferences. The program provides students with a framework and sustained blocks of time to focus extensively on their own writing. Graduate writing workshops meet once a week in a two-hour session. Workshops are all conveniently scheduled in the early evenings, Tuesday through Thursday. Graduate writing workshops may include a short assigned reading list and occasional visits by guest writers who read and discuss their work. Structure and content of writing workshops are adapted to the individual area of concentration. Class sessions are principally devoted to reading and discussing students' fiction, usually short stories or excerpts from novels-in-progress. Students learn how to balance inspiration with revision; explore methods for strengthening characterization, storytelling, and style while developing their voices to the utmost; and explore those narrative forms and techniques best suited to their individual styles.Class sessions are principally devoted to reading and discussing students' poems. There is constant attention to the craft of poetry, the skills and strategies involved in making the modern poem, aspects of prosody and new directions in writing, and, particularly, the discovery (and invention) of techniques most appropriate for the poet's subjects, issues, and materials. There is special emphasis on possibilities for revision.
