Basic Creative Writing
This course will introduce you to creative writing, from generating ideas to revising drafts. Find your voice and develop your craft through in-class and at-home writing exercises, as well as discussions of your own and your fellow students’ written work. You will also study canonical and contemporary models drawn from fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, and will be encouraged to try your hand at each of these genres. Class sessions will consist of discussion of readings, in-class writing exercises, and workshop discussion of writing done outside of class. Once per term, each student has the opportunity to receive feedback from the group on a piece of writing, in the form of a workshop.
