ENG-612: Introductory Residency in Creative Writing

3 credit hours

Students attend this course delivered during an intensive residency. Students must complete pre-assignments before attending residency, including submitting original creative writing to be discussed during the residency Workshop and reading all assigned texts, including the material in the Workshop Booklet, the Residency Book in Common, and the Faculty Book in Common. Students read Area Books in Common and view 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. Students also participate in online orientations before coming to residency, view online required orientation sessions, and attend sessions on critical writing. Students submit residency reports and a Workshop evaluation.
