CRWT 101 Intro to Contemporary Poetry I

3 credits 45.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

The first half of this year-long course will introduce students to the fundamentals of poetic craft and to the varied landscape of contemporary poetry. Students will complete creative and critical responses to recent books, exploring the ways in which poetry’s formal features, such as line and image, connect to aesthetics, culture, and poetic theory. This course requires close engagement with major works of Anglo-American poetry from the last fifteen years; it also emphasizes the production and critique of original creative work and the development of literary community.

Open to Creative Writing majors only.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
