Introduction to Creative Writing

Level 4 (30 credits)

This core module introduces students to a range of literary forms, practices, and concerns that are central to the study of Creative Writing and to developing as a writer today. The module provides an opportunity to read, discuss, and engage with a cutting-edge reading list of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and performance by contemporary writers. It invites students to think about writing by way of theme and process across genres, from voice to style, from experiments with form to expressions of ideas. The module is organized into seminars, workshops, and bi-semester lecture-workshops.
