Special Topics in Creative Writing: Merging Forms|
Students will explore, both in the readings and their own work, forms of writing that don't fit neatly into traditional genres such as fiction, essay, or criticism. Readings will include Maxine Hong Kingston's THE WOMAN WARRIOR (which combines fiction and personal essay), Eduardo Galeano's MEMORY OF FIRE: GENESIS (historical writing combined with fiction), and selected short works by Donald Barthelme, Rebecca Brown, Wayne Koestenbaum, and others (all playing with genre in various ways).
