This course is designed to facilitate your first adventure into the
world of creative writing. You will write both fiction and poetry,
producing one 10-12 page story and 5-7 poems for your final
portfolio. We will meet as a large group once a week to discuss
issues of craft in poems and stories. We’ll also do some class
exercises, read poems and stories from an anthology or two, and take
tests. More intimate discussion of the students’ own work will take
place in the twice weekly meetings with your associate instructors.
There will be two exams, one in each genre. The course is
stimulating and challenging, and it will help you expand your
imaginative horizons as well as teach you to be more critical and
disciplined in your writing.
