× Although it is normally distinguished from “non-fiction” as a genre, much of what poetry does is non-fictional: poets can illuminate science and nature, recount historical and personal narratives, and raise awareness of contemporary societal issues. Through readings, discussions, writing exercises, and workshops, this five-session course will explore techniques for writing poetry about our world.

John Nyman is a poet and critical writer. Alongside a book of (more or less) traditional verse poetry, he has authored manifestos, visual/concrete poems and chapbooks, erasure/blackout poetry, and conceptual bookworks. John completed his PhD on erasure poetry and post-structuralist critical theory in 2018.
