Creative Writing Signature Experience

Terms: 1
Grades :  10, 11, 12

Students involved in the Creative Writing Signature Experience must enroll in this one-term elective each Fall; it is designed to provide an opportunity for Signature students to work together to complete essential program goals. This course will provide an overview of creative writing techniques aimed at multiple genres including poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Students will develop a basic subject-focused vocabulary and gain experience in a workshop environment. While some assignments and readings will be completed by all participants, much of the course content will be individualized for each student’s interests and goals. Second-year Signature students will use their time in the course to develop, revise, and workshop material for their Capstone Project.

Students interested in this course who are NOT part of the Signature Experience may petition the English Department to take the class.
