Creative Writing - Fall 2018
In this course students will develop their creative writing skills in several modes and genres. They will be given the tools and suggestions to develop a daily writing practice, to find inspiration, to complete first drafts and to revise/edit to completion. Virtual workshopping with other students will be a component of this course. We will work with examples of strong writing as models and a source for response pieces. Students will also write creative pieces in response to visual art and will learn to use found sources such as newspapers for inspiration. Students will learn to find appropriate contests and markets for submission, although submission will not be a requirement of the course.
