It’s Your Work: Recent Poems & Generating Poems With Carl Dennis

carldennisWe will spend about half our time looking at the three poems that students send me by regular mail, by December 18th, before the Festival begins. Poems should be typed, not hand written. Students should bring at least 17 copies of each poem to the class, each poem on a separate page. The other half of the time I will be making two writing assignments to be handed in during the week, and we will go over the poems that result. I’ll be handing out model poems for the assignments. The last class will be given over to looking at a revision of one poem by each student.
