ENGL 30401 - Contemporary African American Poetry Forms

 In this class we will study mostly original poetic forms created by contemporary African American authors to learn basic principles poets use to create poetry. We will practice those techniques in a series of exercises that will allow us to explore different forms of contemporary poetry. This class will give you a basic understanding of poetic form, which you can draw upon as you continue to write poetry.
