Dates: May 22 - June 16, 2017
This is an introductory course on the techniques of writing poetry, short prose fiction, and creative nonfiction. Classes are organized around the discussion of student work, reading assignments, and creating original writing in each genre. Prerequisite: Sophomore standing.
Creativity is something that many people possess, but the ability to write creatively does not always come naturally. This course will introduce students to the techniques and craft of writing poetry, short prose fiction, and creative nonfiction. Focus will be on acquainting students to the elements of craft such as figurative/musical language, image, diction, character, point of view, dialogue, and more. We will also work on developing a unique, individual voice. Students will read and discuss model literature in each genre as well as create their own portfolio of creative work. The intention is to grow both as a reader and a writer, and to become prepared for an upper level course in creative writing.
Students will be required to write original creative work, participate in online group discussions, respond to questions about the example literature in each genre, and create a final portfolio consisting of their final, polished creative work. Students will receive feedback from peers and from the instructor.
