Class Description: 
This course is for students who want to explore the techniques of a single genre of creative writing and have already completed a creative writing workshop. Through reading and discussion, they will see their own writing in a larger context. Reading/reflection and writing/revision will be emphasized all semester. The focus will be on the creation of creative works and the learning of stylistic and craft techniques. Ongoing work will be discussed with peer editors, which will not only help students rethink their work but teach them to become better editors. Group critiques will provide the opportunity to give and receive helpful feedback. Each class will rely extensively on the creative writing workshop model, and will focus on a specific genre of print-based creative writing. Genres include poetry, creative non-fiction, literary fiction, genre fiction (speculative, fantasy, etc.), playwriting. May be taken as a professional elective for communication majors; part of the creative writing minor; and may also be taken as an elective. Prerequisite: 211 OR First Year Writing.
