CW 150 - Foundations of Creative Writing

In this introductory creative writing workshop, we will read contemporary short fiction, poetry, and one-act plays with a focus on the rich myriad of writers whose works sometimes defy category altogether. Writing exercises will offer parameters that help you to develop your voice and content, but will not initially pre-determine form. Attention to language and ingenuity of expression will help you to push out of what playwright Mac Wellman refers to as the “already known” as you write your way to a developing aesthetic and form that suits what you want to say.
