JOUR11-111: Creative Writing Project


In this advanced writing workshop, you will work with an instructor to develop an extended or substantive piece of original creative work in a genre and format of your choosing. The nature of the project will be negotiated individually at the beginning of the semester through a written and oral proposal pitch and contract document. Throughout the semester, you will have access to peer and instructor feedback on your project and instruction in frameworks for creative practice, industry expectations and market influences. Class sessions will take the form of small workshops or supervisions, with an expectation of ongoing student participation in a supportive, creative community. While the facilitator will provide feedback and support, students will need to commit to making individual progress on their chosen project.
