Description

Because English 223 is a writer’s workshop, reading and commenting on drafts in progress will be at the heart of our endeavor. Students will study craft elements of fiction and poetry both in the work of their peers and in published work; this study will encourage students to grow as creative writers, as well as develop critical reading skills. Over the semester, students will compose original creative work to be included in a portfolio. Revisions to this creative work, particularly via engagement with craft elements, will comprise the majority of a student’s final grade.


Workshop will focus on the practice of reading as writers, with a strong emphasis on craft elements and the essential question of what makes a story or poem work. How does a given piece aspire to affect readers? How does it deploy craft elements in service of its aims? What is the decision-making process that goes into shaping a piece for an audience? Being an active, thoughtful participant in workshop is key to success in this class.


Along with workshop, students will read a variety of published stories and poems, placing their own work in conversation with the work of practicing writers. By the end of the semester, students will possess an expanded understanding of the craft elements of poetry and fiction, a greater capacity to enjoy the pleasures of reading with a critical eye, and, most importantly, a better grasp on their individual writing and revising process as they continue to produce creative work of their own.
