W103 is an introductory course in the writing of poetry and of
fiction; students will study the basic techniques, approaches, and
subjects of the two genres, and read extensively in them as well.
The course is designed for those students who do not necessarily have
experience in creative writing, but who desire to learn more about
it; W103 is also the usual prerequisite for other creative writing
offerings.  The major requirements are examples of the studentís own
fiction and poetry and exercises in the two genres, which will be
turned in to the courseís Associate Instructors on a more or less
weekly basis. Generally, students will complete four or five poems
and revisions of their poems, one or two short stories, and various
exercises which the AIs will also assign. Students will also attend
weekly lectures on craft, on technique, and on reading assignments
from the anthologies. Midterm and final exams.
