Description

    In this course, a nonfiction workshop, students will write and revise original nonfiction; read, critique, and discuss the work of the other students in the class; and read and discuss writing from the class texts and supplemental material.

    The goals of the workshop involve the development and strengthening of original creative work as well as the expansion of the student’s overall capacities as a writer, critic, and reader. Each student will have original work discussed two or more times during the quarter.

Grading

    Grading will be based on work submitted to the workshop, contributions to class discussions, written comments on student manuscripts, the completion of technique assignments, and a revised, full-length work of creative nonfiction.
