Storytelling in Several Forms

SRLW 7780
This is the introductory course of the three-course Creative Writing Studio sequence. It sets the scene for the course sequence, beginning with the expectations and conventions of a writersí workshop, and explores a variety of forms. The focus is on how poems and stories work, and how writers convey an authentic sense of self or create an emotional connection within the bounds of formal conventions. Participants will be challenged to reflect upon the role of models and the nature of inspiration. While the emphasis will be on participantsí own writing, links will be made with their role as classroom teachers and aspiring school leaders. For Leadership in the Arts (with Sarah Lawrence College) students only.
