Intro to Creative Writing: Poetry and Essay

ENGL 010.302
instructor(s):
TR 10:30-12:00pm

In this class, we will read and write poems and short essays. The class will follow the familiar workshop structure, alternating between critical discussions and collective conversation as we respond to each other’s writing in order to create new drafts. Emphasis will be on revision, camaraderie, and surprise. We’ll read a range of moving verse and prose by some of the most exciting contemporary writers as well as by classic figures in literature.
