Description: In this Gen Ed course students will learn in a workshop setting to write original pieces in three genres that may include the following: short stories, poetry, creative non-fiction, and plays. As models for their own writing, students will read exemplary pieces from each genre taught from different eras and cultures, in order to build a vocabulary base. Thus, students will become familiar with aspects of storytelling such as story arc, characterization, and dialogue; and aspects of poetry such as rhyme, rhythm, and figurative language, for use in their own writing. Through regular exercises, students will generate ideas for creating original writing such as stories, poems, plays, and creative essays, and will refine oral and communicative skills. Students will critique and be critiqued by the entire class in order to revise early drafts, will analyze selected texts, and will evaluate their own and others’ work.
Pre-requisite(s): ENGL 1010 , ENGL 2010 , or ENGL 2015 .
