Creative Writing 2
Course Syllabus -- Spring Semester 2004
goal of the Creative Writing course is to offer students the opportunity
to express themselves in a wide variety of genres, techniques and
approaches. Students will
be presented with examples of many different types of writing in the
hope that each student will discover various modes of expression that
inspire him or her. With
this in mind, students will be asked to complete daily assignments in
the style being presented to "try it out."
However, despite being "forced" to write in various
styles, respect for the students' individuality and personal choice has
determined the structure of assignments.
The major grades for the course (40%) are based on the
assignments that the students themselves choose to work on.
This allows each student tremendous freedom, but also requires
strong individual responsibility. The
goal is for each and every student to learn valuable skills in the
development and revision of writing, and therefore be able to create and
express ideas in whatever form he or she chooses.
