Instructor: Adam Veal

The majority of this class will be dedicated to writing poems and offering constructive criticism on the poems of fellow classmates. We will also read a fair amount of contemporary poetry to investigate the fashions and communities happening in poetry now. Questions to be asked: In what forms/trends do poets write today? What are the limits of these forms/trends? How do we respond to these forms/trends? (i.e. How shall we mimic them? How can we surpass them?) Also: How does one properly represent life in the year 2014?
