**************************WRITTEN ARTS***************************

Writing is a single art with many voices.  This course is an integrated approach to the Written Arts.  It offers a workshop context for students who want to do serious work in creative writing, and provides a challenging introduction into the strategies, resources and manners of four of the main voices of writing.  Over the course of the year, students work in Fiction, Poetry, Playwriting, and Creative Non-fiction, spending half a semester in each, in an intensive workshop and reading context, guided by professional writers.  A student registers for the course by picking one of the two groups (A or B) that best fits the student’s schedule, and is then assigned to one of the four disciplines.  Students will be asked to rank the four areas in terms of personal interests, in order to best match their interests to the genre sequence. The Written Arts courses are for First-Year students only.
