It Doesn't Work for Me: A Critique of the Workshop Approach to Teaching Poetry Writing and a Suggestion for Revision.
Hunley, Tom C.
Writing On the Edge, v13 n1 p59-77 Fall 2002
Considers how the author has seen the best minds of his generation destroyed by faulty pedagogy. Argues that the traditional workshop model was designed as a method for teaching elite graduate students, but notes that many undergraduate poetry writing instructors still employ it. Presents and elaborates on an alternative "Five-Canon" approach to teaching poetry. (SG)
