Poetics Seminar: Writers in Community

Writers in Community is designed as a cohort class for entering MFA students. This course engages several aspects of being a writer, from the page to performance, from innovative poetic concerns to professional development. Several working writers will be invited to give in-class lectures and/or lead workshops. We also explore contemplative gestures and writing processes. By the course's end, students will have completed a context presentation, a prospectus proposing a project of their own, a creative portfolio based on the course's focus of study, and a short professional dossier with career goals. Students are required to attend the What Where series readings on Tuesday night four times during the semester.
