W103 is an introductory course in the writing of poetry and 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 AIs 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.
