The Craft of Poetry Online Course

The Craft of Poetry: Let’s Begin (Online Course) (EGL 103 W)

Do you enjoy reading and writing poetry? Do you want to write your own poems but find it difficult to begin? This course will serve as a dynamic introduction to the foundational structures of poetry writing.

We will consider a wide variety of poetic styles and themes, and address the use of meter, rhyme, and other sonic qualities in peer-driven discussions. Students will use the course readings as reference points in the creation of their own work, and everyone will put together a manuscript of ten to twelve new poems.

Students will receive detailed comments on their drafts from the instructor, and have the opportunity to view and critique one another’s work. The course will include brief reading assignments, group discussion, and weekly guided-writing exercises.

Please note: This is an online course.
