10416 CRW6025 Adv Graduate Writing Workshop Face to Face Instruction (P) M,W 06:00 PM - 07:15 PM Available

In this section of Advanced Graduate Writing Workshop, poetry and nonfiction writers will push boundaries in form, content, or both. Writers should always be taking risks. Students are welcome to focus on just one of these genres, or to experiment with both. We'll focus on craft-based discussions of your new writing, with a few conversations about select published works as a way of informing our understanding of craft. Nonfiction students are invited to write all subgenres of literary nonfiction, including memoir, personal essay, flash nonfiction, graphic narrative, and literary journalism. Poetry students are encouraged to explore subgenres of poetry, such as prose poetry, fabulist poetry, formal poetry, or hybrid forms. Rather than perfecting your (already) unique voice, polishing elements of craft you use all the time, staying rutted in your tried-and-true structure/form, we will be finding ways to challenge your writing in order to take your writing to a new level. We will also read and discuss contemporary American poetry and essays, as well as the creative process, the elements of poetry and nonfiction, and the principles of writing effectively. We will also experiment with the studio workshop method.
