MetadataShow full item record
SCW syllabus / YU only
This course is an introductory course in creative writing. By the end of the semester, you will gain a better sense of the unique qualities of three genres (poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction). The course will also help you talk more confidently and constructively about your own and others’ writing and develop a regular writing practice. You will keep a daily writing journal, respond to regular writing prompts, participate in peer workshops, and meet regularly with the professor. Over the course of the semester, you will write one finished personal essay, at least one polished and revised poem, and one finished short story. This course is required for CW majors and counts towards the Writing Minor. Note that English 1800 does not count for the literature and the arts requirement.
