LANG 494 - Senior Seminar in Creative Writing (4)

Students will work closely with the course instructor, a faculty advisor, and peers to develop a manuscript of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or a one-act play; a series of writing assignments supplemental to the creative writing thesis (e.g., a project proposal, critical introduction, interview with a writer, and reflection paper); and a presentation of a portion of the thesis to the public at the end of the semester. Students will also expand their knowledge of the literary marketplace and writing within a larger literary community by attending readings, understanding the processes of submissions to literary journals, and learning about ways of sustaining a literary life. Prerequisites: LANG 260, LIT 240, the completion of three courses from LANG 361-366 (in at least two different genres), and a declared concentration in creative writing, or permission of instructor. An IP grade may be awarded at the discretion of the instructor. Fall and Spring.
