Chevy Chase, developed by the Chevy Chase Land Company in 1890, was built on Connecticut Avenue, which the Land Company extended. One of the area’s first fully planned communities, Chevy Chase was designed by well-known planners and architects. It was also easily accessible by a trolley line which ended at Chevy Chase Lake, both the community’s power plant as well as an amusement park.

Come prepared with a handful of standstill pieces (i.e. those you have taken as far as you can but cant seem to finish). Each week we will re-see each poem in various ways based on an ongoing list of strategies we will create as a group. Ill bring methods from canonized poets and my own tried and trues. You bring yours. Well brainstorm processes, drafts, and completion versus abandonment.
This course will provide an intense familiarity with poems and poets, with a heavy focus on poems written within the last 100 years. Students will read selections of poetry and the occasional short essay pertaining to the craft and purpose of poetry. Students will complete weekly assignments in the form of journal entries (responding to recent readings) and will, each week, write poems which imitate recent readings in order to better understand the multiple ways in which poets can make meaning.
