Creative Writing EmphasisThe Department of English offers interactive classes in the writing of fiction and poetry—three (3) seminars and six (6) workshops. All instructors are themselves writers.
To receive a letter of completion, majors will take any two (2) workshops in either genre. Workshops create feedback from instructors and peers in a structured written and verbal format.
Also required are two (2) seminars (one lower-division and one upper-division) focused on close reading and practical criticism.
A portfolio of the work written in Emphasis workshops and seminars is collected and submitted to the program coordinator for the letter of completion.
