Section Description

In this course students will experiment with both poetry and the essay form. Special consideration will be given to poets and writers seeking to establish, interrogate, and complicate identity through the lens of gender and sexuality. We will explore representations of the body and desire in both poetry and creative non-fiction (including the lyric essay and literary journalism). We will read the work of contemporary poets and writers in order to further understand our own work and the creative process. These poets and writers will include Natalie, Diaz, CA Conrad, Meg Reynolds, Ama Codjoe, Melissa Febos, Eileen Myles, and Thomas Page McBee. The class is organized around student writing, and we will workshop online in small groups. Assignments include creative responses and a final that includes both a critical paper and a creative manuscript. Welcome to a community of writers. A dedication to craft, aesthetic innovation, and risk-taking is expected in this course.
