- On each
turn in, put your name, the date, and the kind of poem you’ve attempted
the upper right corner.
At the time I'm
writing this, the class size is very small. If that holds, we will try
to discuss one poem each week for each of you.
If you have a
second poem, turn it in to me. I cannot promise written critique on
every week, but will do my best to get comments back to you.
Poems may be
distributed to classmates
either by bringing copies to class a week before they will be discussed
by sending them out on e-mail no later than 7 pm on the Sunday
class. (This deadline may be adjusted according to what you all have to
about it.) It is
your responsibility to get copies to your classmates on time.
You can't expect them to provide thoughtful feedback otherwise.
possible, please paste your poem
into an e-mail message. Send the poem by attachment only when poem
length, line length, or special
formatting needs make pasting unworkable.
- You are
reading your classmates’ poems before class and writing comments on
"Writing comments" means at least a short paragraph of response and
as well as marginal comments or questions. You can add more during
but do not wait until then to read the poem seriously. We will need to
our class time efficiently. Hand in your copies of the poems, with
to me. I will look them over, then pass them on to the poets.
