Creative Writing

Program(s): Immersion

This workshop helps students find their writing voice through a series of creative exercises in fiction, and also in non-fiction and poetry. By the end of the course, each student produces several significant pieces of writing. Daily sessions begin with discussions of reading, followed by afternoon workshops in which students write, revise, and discuss their peers' work. Students have the opportunity to meet several working writers in different fields through in-class visits.  Students write in and out of the classroom and complete nightly reading assignments.  Active class participation is required.
