Workshop format, with discussion of texts and of students’ experiments in the genre. Students must submit examples of their writing to the English office. Three class hours per week.

Limited to 12 students. Please consult the Creative Writing Center website for information on admission to this course.  Spring semester.  Professor Emeritus Townsend.

If Overenrolled: Keep registration open, and the instructor will choose from among the registrants on the basis of a writing sample. The instructor will choose students with a lively engagement with literary language and a wide variety of life experience.
