The Zell Visiting Writers Series brings some of the most exciting writers working today to the University of Michigan. In this introductory creative writing course students will use the ZVWS to enrich their own writing, considering the literary devices contemporary authors use to create their own signature voices.

Over the course of the term, students will tease out the concerns, challenges, and approaches of the semester’s line-up of visiting writers, and will learn how crafting poems, stories, and essays can illuminate their own experiences. Students will read samples of visiting writers’ work and attend the ZVWS readings; assignments will include research and presentation on a visiting writer, an interview with a writer of interest, and imitations of and creative responses to selected readings. The course will culminate in a final portfolio inspired by the ZVWS.
