ENGL: 4660: Advanced Creative Writing: Creative Non-Fiction . A workshop exploring the writing of creative non-fiction. May be repeated for credit. An introductory creative writing class and permission of instructor are prerequisites.
Perhaps the best lesson I gleaned from creative writing class was that I was in the right place at the right time. This was a feeling that came from within, a certain surety that I was doing exactly what I was meant to be doing. The semester that I took a creative writing class was packed with odd coincidences and epiphanies. I was often overwhelmed with feelings of serendipity, and I stopped questioning whether I had made the right choice in pursuing creative writing as my field of study.
NOTE: Any EngW course, with the exception of 8110, can fulfill the "Creative Writing Class of Your Choice" requirement for MFAs.
Not all online writing courses are created equally, and most writing classes focus on one part of your manuscript or another. Not often can you find a online writing workshop that tackles all the major craft issues, such as characters, emotion and viewpoint; description and setting; dialogue; plot and structure; and, the ever important, revision and self editing. But that's exactly what is covered in the writer's workshop, which provides book writing ideas, paragraph writing lessons and more. You'll be provided with checklists, thought-provoking questions, new ways to think about crucial character decisions, writing assignments—which are critical to forwarding your story—and other essential elements thanks to this creative writing class.A creative writing class may be one of the last places you can go where your life still matters.—Richard Hugo
