WRITING ON THEME AND IN SERIES w/ BC Edwards
Instructor:BC Edwards

September 18th

October 2nd
October 9th
October 16th

Creating a unified collection of work at first feels like an insurmountable task. One of the simplest ways to tie a your work together is to create a constructive device, a cementing theme, or find source material from which a group of poems can be adapted. Instead of approaching poetry on a piece-by-piece basis, this course examines entire collections as single work and studies sources of inspiration and methodology to write multiple poems centered around one single theme or constructive device.

Over the 5-weeks we will will explore many techniques, focusing primarily on constructing a thematically unified series of poems and adapting poems from non-poetic and poetic materials alike, as well as how these two methods can work in tandem with each other. Students will bring several pieces of new work to each class for review and discussion as well in class exercises to generate new work. We will look at a wide variety of poets such as Bidart, Carson, Lawless, Bang, Berrigan, Legault and many others.
