Imitation offers a poet a way to break out of habits and try new strategies. Writers at any level can benefit from this type of conscious practice. Join Logen Cure for this four-week online class to explore imitation as a tool to discovery and increased poetic skill. Participants will create four new works guided by published poems from a variety of poets and styles.
Each week you will read poems and respond to discussion questions. The discussion board will be your space to analyze the readings with the instructor and your peers. You will also write a new draft of an original poem to practice imitation techniques. The instructor will provide a space for you to share these drafts and receive feedback from her and your peers. Drafts will be discussed for their potential as original poems, not their merit as imitations. Your drafts are due by midnight Thursday each week.

ABOUT ONLINE LEARNING:
Log in to your class late at night, early in the morning, or on lunch break at work to check each week’s assignments and deadlines — whatever works best for you. If you are a self-starter who enjoys reading, thinking, writing, participating in interesting online discussions, and are comfortable with very basic computer technology, you’re an excellent candidate for online learning.
Once you have registered, we will email you with more information and instructions about how to log in on the first day of class.
