Poetry Lab

Spring 2019

Taught By: John Reed

Section: A

CRN: 4586

Credits: 1

"Poetry is nothing if it is not experiment with language," wrote Wallace Stevens. In this workshop, we'll expand our poetic techniques, building on traditional forms, and moving into the most contemporary iterations, even, if we so desire, hybrid media and video. Exercises and prompts will contribute to discussion and lab submissions. The workshop format of the lab will be further complimented by readings of historical to up-to-the moment poets. As students explore their own innovations, and the innovations of their classmates, they will begin inventing their own devices, forms, and anti-forms. Previous poetry workshop experience is recommended but not required.
