Poetry Workshop and Creative Nonfiction Workshop

SRLW 7781
This course has two parts: a six-session poetry workshop and a six-session workshop in creative nonfiction. A different instructor will teach each workshop. Through selected readings and participantsí own writing, the Poetry Workshop considers the writing and reading of poetry as a way to access the deepest levels of what it means to be human and examines the technical particulars of how this is achieved. The Creative Nonfiction Workshop explores the nature and significance of ìfact,î the importance of style in nonfiction literature, and the writerís competing obligations to art and to the people he or she writes about. During both workshops, participants will also consider the implications of course content and processes for classroom and school practice. For Leadership in the Arts (with Sarah Lawrence College) students only.
