PREREQUISITE: COMPLETION OF THE ENGLISH COMPOSITION REQUIREMENT

W103 is an introductory course in the writing of poetry and of
fiction; students will study the basic techniques, approaches, and
subjects of the two genres, and read extensively in them as well.
The course is designed for those students who do not necessarily
have experience in creative writing, but who desire to learn more
about it; W103 is also the usual prerequisite for other creative
writing offerings. The major requirements are examples of the
studentís own fiction and poetry and exercises in the two genres,
which will be turned in to the courseís AIs on a weekly basis.
Generally, students will complete four or five poems and revisions
of their poems, one or two short stories, and various exercises
which the AIs will also assign. Students will also attend weekly
lectures on craft, on technique, and on reading assignments from the
anthologies. Midterm and final exams.
