Course Overview

Creative writing is in our daily lives. It’s in the ad copy we read in a magazine or see on television, the lyrics to our favorite song, the unforgettable movie dialogue or a favorite line from a favorite novel. Creative writing defies and goes outside of the norm used in most professional, journalistic, academic, or technical writing. This course has an emphasis placed on craft, imagination, invention, and/or the use of literary techniques and devices. Students in this course will focus on a few disciplines of creative writing: gonzo and new journalism, script writing, poetry, and short story. Within each genre, students will dive into the tools and expertise need to develop a deeper understanding of creative writing as a whole.
