Creative Writing

This course will introduce students to a variety of genres in creative writing: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama. Students will study examples of each genre and create short pieces of their own in each area. Students will receive feedback from their peers and professor as they develop drafts of original work. The course is intended to generate interest in more advanced and focused creative writing courses, as well as to allow beginning writers to explore where their interest may lie. Publication of a student-produced literary journal may provide an opportunity, as well, for students to see their work in print. An introduction to the world of editing and publishing may be covered as time and interest permit. Pre-requisites: English 101 and 102 (Composition I and II) and English 210 (Introduction to Literature) or permission of instructor.
