Course code:



MA - Intermediate/Advanced

This class concentrates on the theory and practice of poetry and short fiction, though there will also be a place for “Starting Your Novel” students to finish up.

Our goal is to develop the skills of verbal craftsmanship and self-criticism. Class meetings combine the analysis and critique of individual students writing with the discussions of published works by other writers.

We also frequently discuss matters of standards, the creative process, and the situation of the writer in the contemporary world. Students are expected to submit one piece each week, to participate in class response to fellow writers, to make revisions on all work, and to contribute their best pieces to the printed class anthology at the end of the term.
