• Denver School of Forms and Poetics

    Focusing on aesthetic forms and critical poetics, the Denver School of Forms and Poetics, a summer program of the Department of English and Literary Arts at the University of Denver (DU), provides a forum for the exploration of the unique as well as the interactive capabilities of creative writing and literary studies. In four- and six-hour seminars over a two week period (June 13-25), DU and guest faculty, many of them significant voices in their fields, discuss creative ideas and critical approaches with imagination and insight. Cosmopolitan and innovatory in character, the aims of the Denver School of Forms and Poetics include the interdisciplinary expansion of intellectual boundaries and transcultural studies of form and meaning. 

    Advanced seniors contemplating graduate studies and graduate students already furthering their professional development are bound to find the experience particularly helpful. So too will all individuals principally interested in knowledge and a dynamic vision of the world. Among other benefits, the Denver School of Forms and Poetics helps students develop a robust critical education that aligns with their creative education, or vice versa, and current literary practices. It also facilitates access to enriching ideas and methods, engaging faculty and engaged participants, and a blend of curricular and co-curricular activities.
