This is a course designed to help students write their own poems and
stories, as well as provide insight into the way that literature is
created by individual writers working within or against a
tradition.  The class will meet as a large group on Mondays for
lectures about the elements of poetry and fiction, in-class
exercises, poetry and fiction readings, and tests.  On Wednesdays
and Fridays small group sections will meet to discuss the assigned
material students have read and the original work students have
written.
