Collins Living Learning Center | "Play"giarism as Inspiration
L200 | 21922 | Sarah Eaton

This creative writing course will examine the different ways in which already-created
literature can jumpstart the creative process.  We will read, analyze, and discuss the work of
writers who have worked with other texts to compose their own, as well as examining the
works that inspired them.  We’ll perform a series of exercises that probes the nature of
plagiarism, both in its traditional definition of literary theft, and in the definition of imitation
and inspiration put forth by this course.  You will create stories, poems, or prose pieces that
are inspired by provided work and pieces you bring in.
