Poetry Madness Countdown, playing with language, group and individual writing projects, classic readings, and contemporary literature are a few of the things we will explore in class.  Students will learn how to analyze literature, how to write creatively, and how to write essays.  Readings include a plethora of poetry, a Shakespearean play, short stories galore, and a novella if time permits.   No textbook required.
