CWRT 200 is a hybrid course. Castlegar-based students will attend class Wednesday mornings on the Castlegar campus and students from the Nelson area will attend Thursday evenings at KSA. All students will complete the equivalent of two classroom hours online each week.
The emphasis of CWRT 200: Studies in Writing III will be on portfolio development and preparation of manuscripts for publication. Students will submit for workshop their own imaginative writing in any of the four genres“ poetry, drama, fiction, and non-fiction. In addition, students will engage in a practice of response, analysis, and critique of published and peer written work. Lectures will mirror the assigned readings and serve to initiate theoretical round table discussions on Image, Voice, Character, Setting, and Story. In the second half of the semester students will be required to explore in more depth each of the four genres. Students will be expected to submit at least one of their compositions for publication to an appropriate literary quarterly, magazine, newspaper or theatre workshop.
Prerequisites: Two semesters of first-year university English or Writing with a grade of C or better, or written permission of the Instructor and School Chair.
