This course offers preparation for the world of professional writing. Students will focus on one literary genre-poetry, short fiction, the novel, creative nonfiction, screenplay or play-and produce a substantial body of work. Students will receive both oral and written reviews from the instructor and from fellow students in a supportive workshop format. Students will prepare a portfolio of professional work in their chosen genre; they will write review and critiques; and they will participate in the production of a small-magazine and public performance event. Enrollment Requirements: ENGL 240, ENGL 241 OR FILM 241 with a grade of "C" or higher or of "Pass".
