Writing Seminar I: Art of the Engaged Writer

This course is designed to meet students where they are as writers and stretch their thinking and writing in new directions. Students focus on the creative alongside the critical, the imaginative next to the academic. Conducted in workshop format, the course helps students develop skills in both first-person inquiry and formally constructed essays. Students explore a number of generative and probative writing experiments to locate, identify, and develop ideas, employing different registers of critical thinking and reasoning about the topics. Finally, each written piece goes through multiple drafts as students become objective workshop readers who critique in a supportive manner.
