CRWR 317 - Between Lyric and Narrative: Transitional Prose Forms

FC ARHU WADV
4 credits
In this course, we will look at free verse narratives, prose poems, lyric vignettes, short shorts, and modulator prose forms. Readings will be selected from a diverse group of contemporary writers. 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 4-5 shorter pieces, a mid-length piece, and a longer narrative will be required at the end of term.
Prerequisites & Notes: Please see the introductory material in the catalog for a description of prerequisites. Prior acceptance to the major or an application with an appropriate work sample are required for admission to this course. Applications should be submitted to the CRWR office in Peters 205 by 12 noon on the last day of classes. Check the program webpage for details. Any student who has completed two 200-Level Creative Writing courses or who has completed one 100-Level course, one 200-Level course, and is in the process of completing a second 200-Level course may apply for 300- and 400-Level courses. Students accepted into the major will be guaranteed access to sufficient upper-Level courses to complete the major. For CRWR 350 and 351, students who have declared the Concentration in Literary Translation will have the same priority as majors in CRWR and CMPL. Other qualified students for all upper-Level courses will be accommodated whenever possible. Assignments to courses are made by a committee of Creative Writing faculty. In creating course rosters, the committee will consider, along with student preferences, the diversity of the classes and the pedagogical benefits of students working with a variety of instructors. Details about the timeline for admission, as well as the application forms, are available on the Creative Writing site on Blackboard.
