Summer Seminar: Poetry Bootcamp

In this writing intensive course students will craft original poems using concepts and techniques like surrealist operations, investigative poetics, Japanese poetic diary practice, mining secondary source texts, found language, use of paratextual elements like footnotes, marginalia, and indexing, list poems, etymological research, homophonic and homolinguistic translation, ekphrastic poetry, bestiaries, abecedarians, autobiography, and so forth. Students will generate a copious amount of writing from which to work, edit, revise, and exhaust all resources in the writing of poetry.
