Teaching Creative Writing: a Blog: Teaching Poetry Writing
If you teach a general CW course, what percentage of your class wants mainly to write poetry, what percentage wants to write prose, and what percentage wants to write both?
For my classes, I'd say that:
75% wants to write prose, SF or fantasy novels mostly
15% wants to write poetry
20% wants to write both
That's over 100%, because a small group from the fiction group, and from the poetry group, have some desire to write in many genre.
