ENG-615: Extended Introductory Independent Writing and Reading in Creative Writing—II
After successfully participating in the ENG-612 residency and completing ENG-614, students wishing to extend
their independent study over two semesters begin ENG-615: Extended Introductory Independent Writing and
Reading in Creative Writing-II, the second part of the introductory independent study. The student, who typically
studies with the same mentor for ENG-614 and ENG-615, continues with the Independent Study Plan, which
includes extensive assignments of original creative writing, an individualized reading list, and short critical
writing assignments. During ENG-615, students submit packets to their mentors, at scheduled intervals,
containing a specified amount of material that includes new and revised work, and critical writing assignments.
The mentor replies to each student packet on an individual basis, providing critique and instruction to the
student in a written or recorded response. Students submit other assignments throughout the course, including
evaluations and a student curriculum vitae, which includes a bibliography of books and/or scripts read.
Prerequisites: ENG-614 or equivalent and permission of Chair or Associate Programs Director.
