Throughout the semester a variety of writing prompts will be modeled and craft lessons introduced as the basis for focusing both on how we write and teach writing and why we do so. Time in class, individually and in writing groups, will be devoted to generating, drafting and revising, and finally “publishing” pieces. During the course of the semester you will be expected to develop four pieces using feedback from the instructor and your writing group. Your grade is based, in part, on the ways in which you engage as a writer with developing the pieces both conceptually and using writing craft.
Each piece should be between 2-4 pages, double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 unless it is poetry which is single spaced.
