SCW syllabus / YU only
Course Description and Objectives This advanced creative writing course will allow students to further develop their skills in whatever genre of creative writing interests them, including both poetry and prose, fiction and nonfiction. Students will explore what makes each of these modes of writing unique, as well as how they overlap, complicate, and enrich one another. Your workload will be comprised of both reading and writing with an emphasis on your own creative work. You will be expected to produce a substantial, revised, and well-polished portfolio of your creative writing. In addition, you will be learning terms and concepts important to these genres, and you will respond to several outstanding examples of poetry, stories, and creative nonfiction from established writers. You will share your writing with your professor and your fellow students, and we will spend most of the class in “workshop” discussions of your submitted work. You do not need to feel “advanced” in your writing to take this course, but the course does assume students taking the course will have at least some natural interest in and experience with creative writing. ___ Objectives for the Course • Students will develop a better understanding of language as an artistic medium. • Students will become more confident and informed using the artistic and rhetorical devices that constitute the building blocks of effective writing. • Students will read and discuss creative writing with greater precision and insight. • Students will assess and sharpen their writing in response to written and oral critique. • Students will show improvement in their writing and analytic skills.
