Emphasizing the positive, interactive relationship among student, instructor, and class, students will explore the different genres of creative writing. Students will move at their own pace developing perceptual, technical, and imaginative abilities in several forms of creative writing. This is a writing workshop with a strong literature component. In each meeting we will do a close reading of one or two short pieces of fiction or poetry by well known British or American authors and discuss two or three pieces of student writing. The literature gives students a good introduction to British and American authors from the Romantics to the present, and, more importantly for our purposes, it provides students with excellent examples of different genres and styles that will inspire students to try fresh approaches in their own writing. Course descriptions may be subject to occasional, minor modifications at the discretion of the instructor.
