Minor in Creative Writing - Creative Writing: Poetry I ENGL 3098   Creative Writing: Poetry I
This course provides students with an opportunity to write and workshop poems and to develop skills as poets. The focus will be on writing – how to begin, how to go deeper, what makes a poem powerful. Students will receive peer feedback on their original poems in a workshop environment, and explore poetic technique and tools such as metaphor, simile, enjambment, assonance, alliteration, and rhyme. Various skills will be developed through the sharing of individual and collaborative expression, and the understanding of the movement from first draft to a finished version of a poem.
