Poetry and Fiction Workshops

ENGLISH 70A AND 70B

Enrollment for these workshops is competitive.  The professor teaching each one will choose students based on the strengths of the poems or stories submitted.

The Poetry Workshop is limited to 12 members.  Students who have taken previous Poetry Workshops are eligible to apply to this one, except for students who have taken the Advanced Poetry workshop or done a directed poetry writing project. Final decisions about admission to the Poetry Workshop will be made before Nov. 22 and will be posted on the bulletin board outside of the English Department office, LPAC 202.
