Course Rotation

Fall 2019

In the fall, we’ll offer three excellent courses:

  • WRT 305: Literary Magazine Publishing (in which students serve as editorial staffers on our national literary journal, Prism Review);
  • WRT 303: Poetry Writing, in which students immerse themselves in the craft of writing poetry; and
  • WRT 324: Advanced Literary Non-Fiction, in which  students will study contemporary and experimental works of non-fiction in order create their own original pieces.

January 2020

  • TBD

Spring 2020

  • WRT 204: Intro to Prose Writing (new course! counts as LVWB/Writing 111): in this class, students will learn and apply academic research skills toward creative original works of fiction and non-fiction;
  • WRT 305: Literary Magazine Publishing;
  • WRT 304: Fiction Writing, in which students immerse themselves in the craft of fiction; and
  • WRT 307: Special Topics class, content to be determined.

As needed

For Junior majors and minors: we offer WRT 390: Great Author Immersion, in which students choose a celebrated contemporary literary author, and both critically engage in and creatively write within the style of at least four of the author’s works.

For Senior minors and majors: we offer WRT 499: Senior Project, in which students create their culminating creative theses through slow revision of their already-written creative works and through creations of new ones. We recommend students take this course in the fall of their senior year, especially those considering graduate school in creative writing.
