A hands-on approach to writing, the course focuses on composing and revising a long piece (typically 70-100 pages) in the student’s area of interest, either nonfiction or fiction. Students will be expected to write quickly and effectively, and to learn how to usefully critique other students’ work as well as their own. Each student will set writing goals with the instructor at the beginning of the semester, and will be expected to achieve those goals. Several publishing professionals will act as guest lecturers and critics.
