ENGL 472

Extended Project in Creative Writing

In this reading and writing course, student writers produce approximately 40-60 pages in an attempt to hone their craft through consistent practice. Extended projects require a more intensive imaginary landscape. Students discuss how longer projects require a different kind of sense-making. While short works may often be inspired by single emotions, students discuss how authors conceptualize longer projects. Student choose their own genre for the final portfolio which may include the novella, story-cycles, poetry chapbooks, long poems, or the long short story.

Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor.
