132 Creative Writing (Grear)

Students will refine their creative writing skills and abilities beyond those developed in the required English courses. This course encourages students to see creative writing as a unique way of thinking and constructing meaning. Through reading many examples of great literature and learning varied styles and genres (poetry, fictive prose, non-fictive prose, and drama), students will learn to model a variety of techniques. Peer assessment and threaded/chat room discussions are a major component of the course, as is the ability to accept constructive criticism.
