ENG-613: Introductory Independent Writing and Reading in Creative Writing
After successfully participating in the ENG-612 residency, students begin ENG-613 Introductory Independent Writing and Reading. 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 essays. During the independent study, students in every genre 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 short critical essays. The mentor replies to each student’s packet on an individual basis. Students submit midsession and end-of- independent-study evaluations, and a cumulative bibliography of books and scripts read.
