This course uses students’ reading of literatures in English to teach the writing and editing of literary fiction and non-fiction in prose and poetry. Neither children’s fiction nor genre fiction feature. Students annotate their work and critically evaluate both their own and their peers’ texts. A process writing approach is taken, stressing rewriting and editing. To this end students read aloud their work in writers’ workshops.
This course forms one of two alternate endings to VP3 Intertextuality.
LAS and TCS students who follow this course as part of the core curriculum of their major, need to complete a compulsory preparation course/assignment
