Intro to Creative Writing - 24283 - ENGL 280 - 01
This course is an introduction to the art and craft of creative writing. Exploring techniques of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, we will ask fundamental questions about the boundaries that separate these genres and the spaces where they meet and bleed into other art forms. Considering language as a living entity, and the interconnection between form and content, we will explore different narratives and voices, rhythms and images, lines and sentences, and other techniques and structures that animate stories, poems, and essays. Assignments will invite you to engage with the materiality of language, to think visually and aurally and sensorily, and to exercise your imagination. While actively writing and reading works by established writers and fellow students, you also will develop different editorial and critique skills. The course will involve a mandatory field trip and a variety of writings that will culminate in a final portfolio.
