ENGL 248H - Creative Writing I - Honors

(3,0) 3 Credits
Prerequisite(s): GPA of 3.5 or permission of instructor.
Designed for students who have a genuine interest in developing their imaginative writing abilities in both fiction and poetry, this course will be conducted as a workshop whose primary purpose is to evaluate student manuscripts. Class time will, in addition, be spent discussing the techniques and sensibilities of various contemporary poets and fiction writers. Students will be expected to distinguish between sentiment and sentimentality, between popular and “literary” fiction, between poetry and light verse, between “raw” experience and experience which has been artistically transformed. Thirty pages of fiction, 15 full pages of poetry (or some combination of the two) and a 3-5 page analytical paper will comprise the minimum writing requirements for the course.
