Intermediate Poetry Workshop|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
|Course Cluster and Certificates: Writing Certificate|
How does poetry express what, at first, might seem inexpressible? In this project-based workshop, we will explore this question in an attempt to say the unsayable. Guided by immersive writing and reading experiments into language's limits, students will craft a cohesive, project-centered body of poems while cultivating an engaged daily writing practice.
