Creative Writing (Fulfills Workshop Requirement)
This course is for students who have completed a creative writing workshop and want to explore in-depth a literary genre or add to their skills as a creative writer whether interested in poetry, fiction, non-fiction or a combination of genres. The focus will be on the creation of a significant piece of writing for a final project. In addition to planning and producing a single, sustained creative work, students will complete other exercises and assignments in order to experiment with other genres. Through reading and discussion they will see their own writing in a larger context. Weekly class critiques will provide the opportunity to give and receive helpful feedback. Prerequisite: 211 OR First Year Writing.
