ENG 270: Creative Writing I

online available

Students explore how writers discover ideas by writing and revising original poetry, fiction, drama or non-fiction. Students use the basic elements of literary genres and a literary vocabulary to appreciate and evaluate creative writing. Students become critical readers of creative expression through writing workshops, sharing their work and reviewing others' work in a writing community that provides a supportive audience. Some course sections may focus on a particular genre such as poetry, fiction, drama or non-fiction.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”
