55-3300 Writer’s Portfolio


Course requires that students develop and build a writing portfolio that showcases strong examples of their writing done in Fiction Writing Department classes and elsewhere to present for possible employment or application to graduate school. Students will learn about professional portfolio presentation and the role portfolios play in persuading employers and graduate-admission committees in the fields of writing. Students will rewrite pieces of their own writing, including a range of various writing forms that are key to a successful portfolio and that they wish to include in their final portfolio project. Examples could include cover letters, letters of inquiry, research on publishing markets, stories, and essays. Additional forms may include resumes, clips of feature writing, writing for media, advertising, scripts, business, and other forms of writing that show the student’s writing strengths. It is open to all students and is a capstone course for the BFA in Fiction Writing degree.
