Course Description

This course introduces college students to creative writing. In a workshop setting, students are asked to produce original pieces of poetry, short fiction, and drama. Students will critique their own and peers' pieces, use revision and editing techniques, share their pieces in small and large group, and discuss ways in which creative writing may be taught and shared with others. Additionally, students will submit at least one piece for publication. This course is unusual in its emphases both on oral performance in all three genres and on effective reading of others' writings as a source for original work.

Prerequisites: COSK2220 or COSK2225 and any ELIT course
