Creative Writing (Accelerated)

Credits: 1

Students will create portfolios of their own work in the genres of short fiction, poetry, and playwriting; the portfolio will contain selections from their daily writing journal as well as finished and revised pieces. Students will read widely in these genres from selections of both older and contemporary works chosen by the class, and achieve a sophisticated understanding of the fundamental elements of those genres. The course will include field trips to attend writing festivals and poetry slams as well as trips to local colleges for readings. College credit is available for this course through Southern New Hampshire University.

 

Open to Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors.
