ENG-625: Extended Intermediate Independent Writing and Reading in Creative Writing—II
After successfully participating in the ENG-622 residency and completing ENG-624, students wishing to extend
their independent study over two semesters begin ENG-625: Extended Intermediate Independent Writing and
Reading, the second part of the intermediate independent study. The student, who typically studies with the
same mentor for ENG-624 and ENG-625, 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-625, 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 an
updated student curriculum vitae, which includes a bibliography of books and/or scripts read. If ENG625 is
taken by a MAW student, the coursework culminates with a chapbook-length manuscript of original creative
writing with a critical introduction.
Prerequisites: ENG-624 and permission of Chair or Associate Programs Director.
