Title:   Creative Writing: Fiction      

Course Number:      ENG 0005B
Campus: Medford/Somer.   
Room: Olin Center 103

Course Description:

This course is designed to help you develop the essential elements of creative prose: voice, description, and empathy. Particular emphasis will be placed on precision of language, and how the voice of a story must work in tandem with conscience. You'll also have a look at fiction, poetry, and essays written by masters. We will investigate the current publishing world, so that if you want to send out your work at the end of the semester, you can do so. Finally, I would like you to read your work in progress on class days that we will schedule together, and to comment carefully and thoughtfully on the work of your classmates when they do the same.
Course open to all interested students who want practice and instruction in a workshop situation. Open to all who have satisfied the College Writing Requirement. Each section is limited to twelve students. Pre-requisites: ENG1 and 2 or completion of the College Writing Requirement
