ENG 227 - Intro to Creative Writing - Spring 2014

Creative writing features a tremendous variety of approaches and techniques.  For ENG 227, we'll be examining how to seek out new approaches applicable to our writing goals, and understand the successful writing habits to help us realize these goals, and then effectively present our work to interested audiences.

Major topics for this course include Poetry, Fiction, Life Writing, and Cultural-Historical Activity Theory.

ENG 247.02 - Intro to Fiction - Fall 2013

This is a course designed to help students develop new techniques both as a creative writer and as a critical reader. During the semester, students will be preparing a significant collection of writing, taking part in workshops with classmates, and reading a selection of outside works. Additionally, this course will place a significant focus on using the internet as a means to present creative work to relevant outside audiences - the types of audiences who may hopefully become loyal readers as students begin the road to publication.
