CRWRI-UA 815 Creative Writing: Introduction to Fiction and Poetry (Multiple Sections)
No prerequisite. 4 points.
The popular introductory workshop offers an exciting introduction to the basic elements of poetry and fiction—with in-class writing, take-home reading and writing assignments, and substantive discussions of craft. The course is structured as a workshop, which means that students will receive feedback from their instructor and their fellow writers in a roundtable setting, and should be prepared to offer their classmates responses to their work.
