PROSE AND POETRY (2 cr.)
This writing-based literature course introduces you to a variety of ways in which the written word can be used to express, analyze and critique an array of personal, cultural and political themes and experiences. You will study closely the writings of emerging, established and renowned authors working in a variety of genres (journals, short fiction, drama, poetry, memoir). You simultaneously engage in a series of creative writing exercises and projects that allow you to explore the implications of the written word in your daily life. In addition, you are required to attend several readings by published authors in the local community, as well as give a final reading of your own creative works at the end of the term. Prerequisites: ENGL 1105 or 1100.
