Primary Instructor:

This particular section of English 223 is for students who love to read, want to write, and are serious about engaging with literature as active participants. It’s a class, in other words, about developing some of the habits and perspectives of working literary artists.

Together, we’ll be reading and writing poems and short stories that wrestle with the real world, the world we move through every day. But real doesn’t have to mean dull. On the contrary, the real world is an abidingly strange, wonderful, terrible, surprising, frightening, and fascinating place. It’s the artist’s job to remind the reader of this, using language as a lens that reveals the world in all its complexity.

Because attentive reading is the backbone of any good writer’s practice, we’ll study published poems and short stories in order to analyze the techniques that bring literature to life. Meanwhile, we’ll write diligently, completing weekly exercises and developing our own creative visions, in order to put those techniques into practice. And throughout the semester, we’ll be sharing, discussing, and revising together as a community of serious but generous writers—writers helping one another to be honest and courageous with their emotions and insights, writers seeking the strange and the meaningful within the real.
