Creative Writing

Description:

This semester-long elective course focuses on writing for publication in three genres: poetry, short story, and creative nonfiction. The purpose of this class is to encourage students to cultivate the habits, attitudes and the time management of a writer in a writing community.

The material is taught through the reading of a variety of short stories, poems and essays. Emphasis is placed on incorporating advanced techniques into student writing, as well as understanding and recognizing these techniques in literature.

Students will be expected to enter final products into professional and/or student contests and seek out ways to publish their writing. They will conference with the instructor, participate in writer response/workshop groups, read contemporary published authors, regularly write in a writer's notebook, and experiment with and revise their writing.
