ENGL 4800 - Advanced Poetry Writing

(ALC-AS, LA-AS)      
Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: ENGL 3840  or ENGL 3850  is strongly recommended. Permission of instructor based on submission of a manuscript (bring manuscript to first day of class, or submit via email, depending upon instructor’s preference). ENGL 4800 and ENGL 4810  count toward the English major and may be used to satisfy the 4000-level creative writing requirement for the Creative Writing minor. ENGL 4800 and ENGL 4810  are the same course, the former offered in fall, the latter in spring. Students may take ENGL 4800 and ENGL 4810  more than once. Pre-enrollment does not guarantee a place in the class. Students may not take ENGL 3820 , ENGL 3840 , or ENGL 4801  in the same semester as ENGL 4800.

L. Van Clief-Stefanon.

This course is intended for creative writers who have completed  ENGL 3840  or ENGL 3850  and wish to refine their poetry writing. It may include significant reading and discussion, explorations of form and technique, completion of writing assignments and prompts, and workshop peer review of student work. In addition to the instructor’s assigned writing requirements, students may work on longer-form verse writing projects.
