This class is for students interested in learning about the genre from Charles Rafferty, a regular contributor to The New Yorker. Each week, participants will share a poem, and the instructor will lead a discussion of the manuscript, highlighting what is working well and suggesting ways to improve it. As time allows, there may also be general discussions of craft and perhaps some in-class writing.
The manuscript component of this course will be the following: each student may submit one poem in advance of class to the instructor, for classroom discussion.
