Our rigourous and innovative online courses are offered each semester in Creative Writing, Humanities, and Film studies. Below is a sample of our online classes:
CRW 231 Poetry (Online) - JoAnna Novak
"Poetry existed before writing," Octavio Paz said in an interview with The Paris Review. In this course, we'll work as a community of poets as we experiment with methods of composition, share poems in workshop, revise with abandon, and, of course, read widely. Our course texts will include poetry by Bernadette Mayer, Jericho Brown, and Cynthia Cruz; videos by avant-garde filmmakers; and craft essays--and video essays--by Juan Felipe Herrera and others. Sharing our own words, we'll practice--through thoughtful repetition--what it means to be a poet.
