Creative Non-Fiction Writing

ENGL 135.301
instructor(s):
TR 9-10:30

English 135 is primarily a workshop in the informal essay.  Most of the class time will be devoted to analyzing and evaluating student writing. Essay topics will include character profiles, autobiographical events, and cultural trends, among others.  You will be required to write most every week.  The course will stress writing which is clear, well-organized and interesting in style.  Readings from texts will be assigned as well and discussed in class.

Note: This course used to be titled "Advanced Expository Writing." It *may* by counted toward the English major, even by those who are not concentrating in Creative Writing.
