WRIT 5960 - Senior Seminar in Creative Writing

Goals: In this multi-genre class students will expand their knowledge of themselves as writers, of the craft and process of writing, of the role and value of research in creative writing, and of ways of effectively integrating research into the text.

Content: Students read and discuss literary texts that incorporate research done by the authors. They conduct research on subjects of their choice and integrate that research into their own creative text(s), which includes the writing and revising of a final project in their chosen genre. They select a research-based text and present lessons learned from that text to the class. The course combines discussion, reading and writing assignments, student presentations, and practice.
