ENG-613: Introductory Independent Writing and Reading in Creative Writing
After successfully participating in the ENG612 residency, students begin ENG613: Introductory Independent Writing and Reading in Creative Writing. The student and assigned mentor create an Independent Study Plan, which includes five extensive assignments of original creative writing, an individualized reading list, and short critical writing assignments. During the independent study, students submit five packets to their mentors, at scheduled intervals, containing a cover letter, 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 midsession and end-of-session evaluations and a student curriculum vitae, which includes a bibliography of books and scripts read.
Prerequisites: ENG-612 or equivalent and permission of Chair or Associate Programs Director.
