This seminar course offers students the opportunity to develop, critique and refine a body of writing with an emphasis on the exploration of individual style. Through lectures, writing exercises, class discussion, readings, presentations, and individual critiques, the elements and strategies involved in both the craft and the creative process of writing are examined, as are different critical theories of literature. As a way of understanding cultural and social influences on artistic vision and the creative imagination, students are exposed to a range of writers of diverse cultural and aesthetic backgrounds.
