Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the development and implementation of a university course: Beyond the Literary Uses of Poetry. This freshman course allowed students to learn about the nonliterary uses of poetry using experiential, hands-on techniques that helped them to develop new communication and analytical skills. The nonliterary uses of poetry were simultaneously the topic and method of class sessions and experience.
