3 Credit Hours
In a studio-oriented atmosphere, students will explore a range of creative writing genres including poetry (free verse, "slam, "spoetry," and traditional forms), flash fiction and short story, song lyrics and dramatic scene writing. The course will also emphasize special stylistic techniques and aesthetics that inform specific expressive genres. Class sessions will emphasize invention activities and feature interactive workshops about drafts in progress. Students will read and discuss examples of "classic" and "popular" literature with an eye toward aesthetic value-how does its content work technically and why is it circulating among hundreds of people? This course fulfills either a fine arts or upper level literature and writing requirement for the core.
