This section of ENGLISH 473 is in the English Department's New England Literature Program (which is also made up of ENGLISH 317 and ENGLISH 328) and accounts for the creative work that students do in their journals over the course of the program. For most students, this work includes most or all of the following: poetry & fiction, drawing & painting, and writing that is a product of or assigned in conjunction with other kinds of creative expression like dance and drama. But the real core of the work students do in their NELP journals is the creative non-fiction writing that both documents their experiences at NELP (in the classroom, hiking mountains, cooking spaghetti for fifty...) and forms a network of reflection that connects those experiences to the readings they do for the program as well as for the more conventionally academic writing they also do in response to those readings. We see the journal at NELP as a creative document that incorporates academic work as one of its many parts, and as a space for our students to experiment with language as a primary medium for engaging with our particular brand of experiential learning at NELP, through alternately creative and academic modes.

This class is part of a sequence of classes (with ENGLISH 317.101 and ENGLISH 328.101) that students enroll in as part of the English Department's New England Literature Program. Students apply for NELP in January of each year for the following Spring Semester; this year's NELP students have already been selected.
