Collins Living Learning Center | "Play"Giarism as Inspiration
L110 | 30549 | 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.
