This course will explore the various elements of craft employed in the genres of poetry, fiction, and dramatic writing. Through lectures, discussion of readings, as well as in-class exercises and written responses, students will begin to learn how to incorporate elements of craft in their own creative writing. Students will also understand the specific differences between each genre of creative writing. By the end of this course, students will have a soundcloud account with five podcast episodes that will critique literature and present original pieces. Students will also gain understanding of what development of a draft and revision entails.
