ENG-672: Book-Length Manuscript Workshop with Residency

3-5 credit hours

The Book-Length Manuscript Workshop takes place during a 10-day intensive residency. Students must complete pre-assignments before attending the residency, including submitting a book-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 critical essay on the Faculty Book/Script in Common. During the residency, ENG-672 students present and provide comment on full manuscripts presented in a faculty-led Workshop. During residency, students attend required lectures, conferences, and readings. ENG-672 students may also be required to participate in or fulfill other residency requirements (including Small Group Discussions). Students submit residency reports, a Workshop evaluation, and any other required evaluations. This course may be taken only once. Students enroll in the 5-hour course if the focal area of ENG-672 is full-length prose manuscripts. Students enroll in the 3-hour course if the focal area of ENG-672 is poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, or picture books, unless as a substitute for the capstone Residency or Graduation Residency, which require 5 credits and fulfillment of all graduation requirements.
