ARHU298J: Creative Writing—Cross Cultural Perspectives in Poetry and Fiction

Immerse yourself in the writing of fiction and poetry that encourages creativity while expanding knowledge. You’ll hone your writing craft in a nurturing, interactive environment while developing skills that help uncover your own distinctive voice. You’ll read great poems and stories from across cultures and engage in related writing exercises.

Afternoon sessions are devoted to studio time spent reading and writing. You’ll share your original writing in a supportive workshop setting and discover new approaches to revision
