Course Description

Creative writing is neither composition nor methodology, instead a safe environment where students will work through a personal sense of purpose through writing in the hope that ideas will be sparked, confidence acquired and both powers of imagination and observation will be expanded. Objectives Practice and observation is key, but also an in-depth look at the creative process through self/peer editing and analysis, as well as exposure to various forms of fiction and non-fiction. By distinguishing between simple and sophisticated forms of writing, not only reading, but conversation skills will also be enhanced.

Pedagogical format

We will apply which consists of the following three points : Read and place an unrevealed text from a published author within its historic/socio-economic context while establishing an overall theme. Use this theme to generate a student-produced in-class text that will be handed in at the end of each class. Every week, three unrevealed student texts will be chosen, then discussion and peer analysis will begin (out-of-class assignment).
