ENG395 Introduction to Creative Writing: This course is meant to spark your literary interests, talents, and inclinations, so that you can walk away with a clearer image of who you are – or rather, who you might be – as a writer. This applies to everyone, from those who might have never written before, to those who are fairly decided on their preferred forms of writing, and everyone in between. You will read a fair amount of short stories and poems, and then write your own. You will critique the works of your classmates, and help one another on this path of self-discovery and skill improvement. And if you enjoy the crafts of fiction and poetry, rest assured: you will have a great time.
