WRIT 3540 - Multi-Genre Workshop

Goals: In this course students continue to explore and practice the fundamental forms and elements of the genres offered in the course description: poetry and fiction, poetry and CNF, CNF and fiction, hybrid forms, or a mix of all three genres.  Students also study the connecting threads and overlaps between and among genres and may experiment with cross-genre and/or hybrid work. They write and revise original work and provide craft-based written and oral feedback on the works of their peers.

Content: Students build skills through writing and revision of their own genre of choice and of other genres through giving, receiving, and acting on craft-based written and oral feedback. The course combines writing, reading student work and some outside work, occasional exercises and experiments, and craft-driven workshop discussion.
