9Y: Creative Writing

ColWrit 9Y. Creative Writing 

3 units

Art and language come together in the field of creative writing, and in this course, creative writing and English practice come together as well! Students will focus on the elements that make for effective creative writing (poetry, fiction, and the personal essay): descriptive detail; imagery and figurative language; rhythm and structure/build; and authentic tone, dialogue and characterization. Integrated exercises will help students improve their critical reading, vocabulary, grammar and writing skills. The course includes an engaging and hands-on fieldwork component.

Please note, students enrolling in Colwrit/ESL 9Y course must take an online placement exam.
