ENG 507 - Literary Forum: Tabula Poetica Poetry Reading Series/Mentoring Series

Prerequisite, admission to the MA in English, MFA in creative writing, or the dual-degree program. The Tabula Poetica Literary Forum brings three strands of English studies–literature, creative writing, and rhetoric–together in one graduate-level course. Students read and discuss contemporary poetry as literature while focusing particularly on works of visiting writers in the Tabula Poetica lecture and reading series. In addition, this course participates in the Chapman University/Orange High School Literacies Partnership; as such, students also study both rhetorical and pedagogical strategies to mentor high school students from diverse linguistic and socio-economic backgrounds as the high school students, too, engage with the work of the poets in the series and also generate their own creative writing. May be repeated for credit. (Offered fall semester.) 3 credits
