PREREQUISITE: Completion of the English Composition requirement.
W103 is an introduction to the writing of poetry and fiction.
Students will attend a weekly lecture designed to introduce them to
aspects of writing poetry and fiction, and also meet twice weekly in
discussion/workshop sections, which are directed by associate
instructors. Students will be asked to attend all sessions
regularly, to read and discuss poetry and fiction from the course
texts, to write creative exercises, and to fully draft at least four
poems and several short fiction assignments. Two exams will be
given based on the poetry and fiction units covered in Monday
lectures. The major focus of the course will be on the student's own
writing and original creative work.
