CRW 300 Advanced Creative Writing Across Genres (poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction)

For the committed writer of poetry, fiction, or creative non-fiction who wants to engage in serious discussion of their work and that of their peers and of relevant readings. Students work on a longer manuscript in a primary genre, and one shorter piece in a secondary genre. Students select (most of) the texts for the class. We will also look at contemporary journals and webzines that publish these genres, as well as seminal essays about them. The class is run as a seminar-type discussion and intensive workshop class. Active and regular participation in discussion is required.




At least two courses in creative writing or permission of the instructor.
