ENGL 2800 Introduction to Creative Writing

Course description

An introductory course in the theory, practice, and reading of fiction, poetry, and allied forms. Both narrative and verse readings are assigned. Students will learn to savor and practice the craft of poetry and narrative writing, developing techniques that inform both. Some class meetings may feature peer review of student work, and instructors may assign writing exercises or prompts.

While they cannot be counted towards the English major, ENGL 2800 or ENGL 2810 is the prerequisite for 3000-level creative writing courses, which do count toward the major. Also, the course can be used to fulfill distribution requirements in humanities.

Prerequisites

Completion of the First-Year Writing Seminar requirement.
