CRWR 5101 Mentorship 1: Poetry

Mentorship 1 places American poetry of the 21st century in its historical context in order to inform the students� stylistic and aesthetic choices for his or her poetry. Students are expected to become familiar with the American poetry movements since 1914. Students will read selected poems along with essays that discuss the craft of poetry. Regular writing exercises that arise from the readings are aimed towards generating new poems for the end-of-semester portfolio. Every four weeks students will submit original creative writing to the mentor for feedback. Students will also engage in monthly online discussion/ workshops with their peers.
