ENGL 010.302
instructor(s):
W 2-5

In this class we'll read and discuss excerpts from and short pieces of contemporary and classic fantasy and science fiction writing while working on science fiction and fantasy writing of our own. The course is primarily a workshop; students will be expected to write and respond to each other's writing, as well as to the assigned readings, each week. Grades will be based on attendance, class participation, weekly writing assignments, and a final portfolio and self-evaluation.
