ENG-632: Advanced Residency in Creative Writing

3-5 credit hours

Students attend this course delivered during a 10-day intensive residency. Students must complete pre-assignments before attending residency, including submitting original creative writing to be discussed during the residency Workshop, submitting a short critical essay on the Faculty Book/Script in Common, and reading all assigned texts, including the material in the Workshop Booklet, the Program Book in Common, and the Genre Book in Common and viewing films, when required. Students are assigned to participate in Workshops led by faculty mentors and are expected to be open to the comments of faculty and students, to provide comments on the work of other students, and to participate in any other assignments presented by Workshop faculty. In addition to Workshop, the students attend required lectures, conferences, and readings and participate in cross-genre and interrelatedness-of-the-arts activities. ENG-632 students also attend required orientation sessions and participate in Small Group Discussions. Students submit residency reports and a Workshop evaluation. At residency, the student and mentor usually create an Independent Study Plan for ENG-633. If a student takes ENG-632 as the MAW capstone residency, the student must also fulfill all capstone requirements and accordingly earns 5 credits.
