Fundamentals of Creative Writing (LIT2394.01)

Jenny Boully

In this class, we will begin by investigating sound, music, image, and form in poetry and how these poetic elements are presented in fiction. From fiction, we will study narrative, character, plot, and setting. Finally, we will progress towards personal nonfiction, fusing the elements of our poetry and fiction investigations. We will read classical and contemporary texts from diverse authors and voices, while also crafting individualized creative work. Students are expected to also write critically on creative texts. Throughout the term, students will engage in workshops, one in each genre, with the goal of completing a mini-portfolio of revised creative works.
