The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the practice of creative writing in various forms within a workshop setting, utilizing texts as models that represent a diverse group of authors.
Though some of you will end up in careers not closely related to creative writing, the efforts you put into brainstorming story and subject ideas, thinking about the ways stories matter, observing closely, identifying what’s working and what’s not in a piece of writing, and putting complex ideas into words that enliven, challenge, and create deep feeling in your reader/audience, will give you tools and confidence that will help you succeed in countless other areas. I will be available to you through conference or email to answer questions about your writing work, help you move forward when you feel stuck, talk about the English writing major and/or minor at DePauw—whatever you need
