Course Aims

This course exposes students to elements of writing craft in one or more genres and focuses students on the creative writing process through a workshop setting.  Students will submit a piece of creative work for peer workshop review under the guidance of a faculty member and be required to revise the piece for a second submission to the workshop.  As well, through writing exercises and assigned readings, students are exposed to new approaches in the writing process, which can be applied to their own creative writing.  

Note:  This course offers separate sessions and students can choose from either Creative Nonfiction or Fiction or Poetry. It is likely that students working in different genres may be grouped together in one workshop.  However, other than complying with specific writing exercises or reading assignment which may address other genres, students focus primarily on creative work in one genre.
