Creative Writing II
Prerequisites: Creative Writing I
Building upon the foundations learned in Creative Writing I, students in Creative Writing II will engage in more specific practice in the conventions of short story writing, creative nonfiction and poetry. Students will have directed assignments encouraging experimentation in multiple genres but will prepare a final portfolio that may give more emphasis to a genre of their choice. Special emphasis will be placed on reading examples of these conventions and learning how writers graft or borrow techniques (dialogue, dramatic monologue, voice, description) from one genre to apply it in another.
