CREATIVE WRITING PORTFOLIO

Please click here.

In addition to regular attendance and class participation, 20% of your final mark will be derived from a creative portfolio consisting of your own attempts at some or all of the following:

  • a Renaissance-style sonnet;
  • a brief extract from a Pope-style 'poetic essay' or 'philosophical poem';
  • a short poem written in the style of Blake;
  • a Wordsworth-style ode or a brief excerpt from an epic written in the style of The Prelude;
  • odes written in the varying styles of:
    • Coleridge (his so-called 'conversation poems'),
    • Shelley, and
    • Keats.

(We may add to or subtract from the list as we proceed and as other relevant genres and activities suggest themselves.)

We shall use the tutorial hour (10-11 on Wednesdays) to share with each other our attempts at these various kinds of poetry. 

To this end, students should send me soft copies of their poems before the relevant tutorial so that I can post them for everyone to read as a basis for tutorial discussion.
