Description

Class Experience

Good creative writing is a practice of imagination, appreciation, critical awareness, imitation, and experimentation. It is developed in conversation with the models of fine writing that precede us, through experiment and exercises. Students will read, assess, 
and sometimes imitate exemplary pieces of fiction, poetry, and drama. We’ll focus on how writers do what they do, as well as the why and what of specific techniques, literary modes, and strategies of language. I
