Creative Writing isn't for beginners; it's for people who have been writing for a
while or who have done a course or two before and are working on their own
projects. You’ll be asked to bring in several pieces of your writing for
detailed feedback, including three long pieces. All your pieces may be from the
same work, such as a novel in progress, or they may be stand-alone pieces. You
bring whatever you want to work on.
critiquing pieces, the instructor will give short lectures addressing the needs
of the group, and in addition to learning how to critique your own work and
receiving constructive suggestions about your writing, you’ll discover that the
greatest benefits come from seeing how your classmates approach and critique a
piece of writing and how they write and re-write. This is a challenging course,
but extremely rewarding.
