ENG 212 Introduction to Creative Writing

3 hours 

This course introduces students to the writing workshop format.  In a workshop environment, students explore three principal genres of creative writing:  first-person narrative, fiction, and poetry. We begin each section of the course with discussion of the genre’s structural guidelines and close reading of short published work, and follow with exercises to help students gain familiarity with a writer’s tools.  Then students write and present their original creative work in class for constructive criticism from other workshop members and instructor.  Writers then re-think and revise their work, essential steps in the writing process.
