Web-based mentorship: International Poetry Guild (3 credits)
Offered Fall & Winter
Meets Tuesdays 4:30-6:30
Wolverine Access #20246
The International Poetry Guild offers U of M students the opportunity to share their enthusiasm for writing with a world-wide audience of student writers. U of M students will explore ways to create safe and supported spaces for middle school and high school writers as these younger students publish their poetry in an online “guild.” Mentors will stay current with the special challenges of the process of writing creatively, because they too will be fashioning creative written work. Don’t feel like you have a creative bone in your body? Don’t have a background in English or poetry? No problem. Some of our best mentors (and writers, as they realized throughout the semester) come from academic disciplines as diverse as business, kinesiology, psychology, and engineering.
