How Writers Write Poetry, a six-week course beginning on June 28, 2014, is an interactive study of the practice of writing poetry. The course presents a curated collection of short, intimate talks on craft by two dozen acclaimed poets writing in English. Craft topics include sketching techniques, appropriation, meter, constraints, sound, mindfulness, and pleasure. The talks are designed for beginning poets just starting to put words on a page as well as for advanced poets looking for new entry points, thoughts about process, or teaching tips.

The course will be taught by University of Iowa International Writing Program Director and poet/translator Christopher Merrill as well as Black Rainbow Editions Editor and poet Mary Hickman. Contributing poets' video talks will be contextualized through online discussion and writing assignments. The Poetry Teaching Assistants (all Iowa Writers' Workshop students or graduates with university level experience teaching creative writing) will join Mary Hickman in offering online poetry workshops to participants. (Please note: we can’t workshop everyone, but we will workshop a representative selection of participants’ work every week.) Poets who have contributed video craft talks for the course include former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Hass, Kwame Dawes, Marvin Bell, Kiki Petrosino, Kate Greenstreet, and many others. How Writers Write Poetry will offer a diversity of answers to the question of how a writer develops and refines the lifelong practice of his or her craft. Enrollment in How Writers Write Poetry is free and unlimited.
