Formal Poetry Programs


We're continuing our conversations with David Roderick.


Hi David, I write several styles of formal poetry, and I'm wondering if you could recommend East Coast MFA programs that would be particularly receptive to formal poems. I write free verse, too, but am just curious about which programs might be the best fit for me. Thanks for your help! Help Me Fit In To Formal(wear)

-----------------------------------------------

Hey there, Mr. Formalwear. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance online.

I'm glad to hear that you're keeping the ol' forms in business. As long as you're not writing too much like Algernon Swinburne or Sir John Suckling, I'd like to think that any good MFA program would respect your work in poetic form. As I said in an earlier post, I think you should send your very best poems, whether they're written in form or not. But that said, a few schools come to mind. Take a close look at Florida, Boston University, and maybe Cornell and Maryland.

Good luck to you and your pantoums.

David
