W103 is an introductory course in creative writing. Students take an
apprenticeship approach to the art and craft of poetry and fiction
by examining as novice writers the work of professional writers from
diverse traditions and approaches, and by composing original work
through exercises and formal assignments. Students meet for lecture
on Mondays where the various elements of craft will be explored
through assigned readings and exercises, and again on Wednesdays and
Fridays in small groups for close reading of assigned texts as well
as discussion of original work. Course work includes extensive
reading and writing as well as two exams.

Course texts: The Vintage Book of Contemporary American Poetry and
The Habit of Art: Best Stories from the Indiana University Fiction
Workshop.
