W103 INTRODUCTORY CREATIVE WRITING
12617 - 1:25p-2:15p M (105 students) 3 cr.
This class is designed to introduce students to a range of poetry
and fiction, and in the process introduce them to a range of
techniques and craft elements with which they will improve their own
(or begin their own!) writing. The class will meet on Mondays for
lectures and vigorous discussions of the texts and techniques,
exercises and possible exams. There will be two smaller meetings
each week as well, during which you’ll work closely with an
instructor and your classmates.
Texts will include a poetry and fiction anthology, as well as
individual collections of poetry and fiction.
