Between Lyric and Narrative: Transitional Prose Forms

Creative Writing 317

Usual Description

In this course we will look at free verse narratives, prose poems, lyric vignettes, short shorts, and modular prose forms. The readings will include work by Cernuda, Rankine, Wideman, and Maso. The weekly writing exercises will require creative responses in the forms being studied, building over the course of the term, to longer prose narratives. A portfolio of 6-7 shorter pieces, a mid-length piece, and a longer narrative (min. 10 pp) will be required at the end of term. Prerequisite & Notes: Admission to this workshop requires the completion of CrWr 201 and an application with appropriate work sample. Applications should be submitted to the the CrWr Program Office by 12 noon on the last day of classes. Check the program webpage for details
