New Creative Writing courses coming spring 2012

We're pleased to announce the addition of two new second year courses -- both to be offered in Spring 2012.

Our new second year Creative Nonfiction course (Engl 293) will be part of the core of our program. This course in Creative Nonfiction, to be taught by Ryan Knighton, will explore contemporary forms of nonfiction and will delve into professional aspects of writing such as "the pitch" and the editing process.

In collaboration with the theatre department, we will also be offering a course in Writing for the Stage. This course, Engl 296, will be an intense workshop in the writing of short plays (team taught by a director and a practicing playwright) and will culminate in a performance of these works before a public audience. Exciting!

Stay tuned for new readings in the Prosetics Series, coming this fall.
