This seminar is primarily designed for DIV II students whose primary writing interests and pursuits feature creative writing—fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, literary journalism, or other related genres. The seminar will consist of reading, workshops, and peer critique. Writing is often regarded, and rightfully so, as a solitary practice; one of the objectives of this seminar will be to explore the notion of writers in community with one another, supporting and encouraging each other’s work. There will also be a strong focus on revision strategies. Based on the size of enrollment, students will present work to be considered by the workshop as a group two to three times. The seminar aims to further develop organizational and proactive work habits, and endeavors to prepare participants for their upcoming work towards the close of Division II. Regular participation and attendance is expected.
