ENG-672: Full-length Manuscript Workshop with Residency

3-5 credit hours

The Full-length Manuscript Workshop takes place during an intensive residency. Students must complete pre-assignments before attending the residency, including submitting a full-length manuscript by the deadline and reading and commenting on all book-length manuscripts of participants in the Workshop before residency. Other student pre-assignments include reading all assigned residency texts and submitting a short review of on the Faculty Book/Script in Common, usually in their major area of concentration. Students read Area Books in Common and view films, when required. Students also view online required orientation sessions. During the residency, ENG672 students present and provide comment on full manuscripts presented in a faculty-led Workshop. During residency, students attend required lectures, conferences, and readings. Students submit residency reports, a Workshop evaluation, and any other required evaluations. This course may be taken only once. If a student takes ENG672 as a substitute for ENG642: Advanced Residency II in Creative Writing, the student must also lead a Small Group Discussion. If a student takes ENG672 as a substitute for ENG645: MFA Graduation Residency, the student must also fulfill all graduation requirements. Students enroll in the 5-hour course if the focal area of ENG672 is full-length prose manuscripts. Students enroll in the 3-hour course if the focal area of ENG672 is poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, or picture books, unless as a substitute for the Capstone Residency or Graduation Residency, which require 5 credits.
