Section Information for Fall 2021
In this course, students are introduced to the editorial work of the longstanding online poetry anthology Poetry Daily, edited and produced at George Mason University. (To learn more about Poetry Daily, visit www.poems.com/about.) Alongside the study of Poetry Daily's editorial practices, students will explore the literary merits of contemporary poetry in English as it is published today via a broad range of literary journals and presses, from the US and abroad, who submit to and are featured on the website. Class time will be divided between the weekly “live” editorial meetings, for which students in ENGH 619 will gradually contribute poems and participate in discussion, and three learning modules: reading, writing, and PD Projects. It is my hope that students in this class become familiar with an important publishing project, both at George Mason and in the context of the larger world of contemporary poetry, and simultaneously develop, individually, as readers and writers of poetry. I look forward to our work together this semester.
