ENGL 21400 Introduction to Writing Poetry

GE-Communication Have you ever caught yourself listening to the wordplay in a song and thought, “I wish I could do that?” Do you have feelings that seem just beyond the reach of words? The greatest poets have felt the same thing, and they learned what to do with that feeling. This class will be the start of your experiment with the oldest of human art forms. Learn the forms of expression that come down through poetic tradition, and work to add a few new ones of your own. A workshop course, this class will give you the opportunity to write poems and have them read by peers as curious about language as you are.
