This generative course gives students the opportunity to write in three different literary genres: fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. Students will learn basic skills used to create literature, as well as the craft fundamentals used in the three genres: Story, scene, and character in fiction; imagery, figurative language, and sound in poetry; memory/meaning, action/reflection, and writing-through-discovery in nonfiction.

Throughout the session, students can expect a combination of lectures, in-class writing exercises, short reading activities, and informal discussion.

Previous experience with creative writing is not necessary.
