Please note: The bulk of instruction for this course will be held online, though on-campus students will participate in several in-person sessions with their instructor.
Students are also required to attend 2-3 events per semester with visiting writers (these are scheduled on Wednesday afternoons and evenings; Q & A sessions at 4:30 and readings at 6:00 p.m.).
The English department highly recommends that students be enrolled in only one Creative Writing course in a semester. If you are admitted to more than one Creative Writing course, we request you choose one and let the instructors know during Adjustment Period. By doing so you will be considerate of instructors and other students. This course fulfills the Creative Writing requirement, CW path course (but not 300-level course or upper-level workshop), elective.
