The State of 21st Century Poetry

An intense survey of the rapidly evolving paradigm of poetic style and form in the age of social media. We will be primarily looking at American and English-speaking poets, but are open to examples from other cultures brought in by students. Students will be engaging in close readings and free-write prompts in an effort to develop their own modern style. We will share and critique work in a workshop format both online and via live sessions.
