Students at this level are writing poetry with an increased focus on creating an individual voice and emotional richness. The exercises include a range of free and traditional verse, as well as traditional forms like the sonnet, villanelle, sestina, and pantoum. We also examine meter and syllabics to strengthen students’ technical skills. This class challenges students to recognize what makes a poem engaging and entertaining to the reader. Students follow the Craft Class syllabus (along with readings distributed by the teacher) from which exercises are taken. Many students are finishing exercises and publishing poetry in literary journals and anthologies.

Open to students who have completed Level II or upon the recommendation of the teacher.
