Course combines the study of aesthetics with the study of the business of creative writing. Student writing in class may include (but is not limited to) critical essays on the craft of creative writing; craft commentaries on your own work and on the work of others; interviews with other writers; cover letters; query letters; and research essays on publishing markets. Students will learn about professional presentation for submitting their writing for publication and for evaluation by employers and graduate-admission committees in fields where effective communication, creative problem-solving, critical analysis, editing, and group relationship skills are crucial factors.
