Writing Philadelphia: A Creative Workshop cancelled

ENGL 410.941
instructor(s):
MW 5:30-9:20 pm

This creative writing workshop will be devoted to engaging with the diverse
literary histories of Philadelphia, from its vibrant poetry and spoken-word
scene to its many celebrated and award-winning practitioners of creative
and journalistic prose. Students will engage with literatures of the city
as readers, but also, and more importantly, as writers crafting and
workshopping their own original creative works in ways that engage their
own experience of the city: its landscape, architecture, cultural history,
arts, and even food. Our class will culminate in individual creative
portfolios; we will also design and plan a collaborative final project.
