CRW 206 FICTION WRITING: INTRODUCTORY-In this introductory course we’ll be reading a wide range of contemporary short stories as a way of learning about the elements of fiction and how they can be manipulated.  Then, drawing on what you’ve learned about fiction from our reading and class discussion, you’ll write a story and distribute it to your classmates for workshopping.  Assignments include a test, quizzes, written peer critiques, and one fully-developed story.  This is a discussion-based course, so your consistent attendance and active class participation will be crucial to making it a success.

CRW 208 CREATIVE NONFICTION WRITING: INTRODUCTORY-This introductory course is divided into three units:  1) Reading, analyzing, and discussing well-known short memoir pieces; 2) completing creative exercises and other assignments that will help you shape your own memoir piece; and 3) drafting, workshopping, conferencing, and editing.  Graded assignments include a test, in-class reading responses, a presentation, written critiques, and one original memoir piece.  This is a discussion-based course, so your consistent attendance and active class participation will be crucial to making it a success.
