Poetry Writing CoursesWriting poetry courses
Pupils are following the Writers Studio Craft Class curriculum - together with the lectures given by the instructor - from which the tutorials are taken. Like all The Writers Studio on-line tutorials, the tutorial works with a week-long commission, an hour-long week-long livecon and the publication of reviews in the onlineroom.
We publish the transcripts on-line for those who cannot take part in a conversation. From the third lesson the pupils also take part in the Writers Studio Craft Series. A lot of writers successfully apply for literature magazines, competitions, residencies and MFAs.
Online Advanced Poetics Workshops are open to those who have a degree in poetics publishing, an MBA or four postgraduate write classes, or have attended Level II at The Writers Studio. The places in this workshops will be allocated on a case-by-case however.
Poetry and the Art of Poetry
For those who want to get ready, we suggest to watch some of the video's at www.favoritepoem.org. Poetics live in every readership, not necessarily in the performances of the poets or a scholar. It is indispensable to have the joy of saying a verse, or even to say it in your fantasy - the listener of the spirit.
This is a key concept of "The Art of Poetry", as the video on favoritepoem.org shows: the filmmaker says Sylvia Plath's "Nick and the Candlestick", the high scholar says Langston Hughes' "Minstrel Man". This reader bases what they say about any poetry on their own experiences of saying it.
At the centre are artistic aspects such as the historic relationship of poesy to mating, free verses of tonal technique, poetic ity and complexity, jest and glory - with only random attentiveness to "schools", jargon, classes and ceries. Students are urged to think truly, diligently and with passion about what the book says and how it will feel in their own, real or imaginary voices.
"By encouraging the readers to embody it by substituting it.... make your own anthology." Similarly, this course aims to encourage a life-long course of studies in poesy.
