This intensive creative writing course will challenge students to take themselves seriously as artists and guide them as they develop a personal approach to composition. Students will gain an understanding of the concept of the "voice of the artist," exploring new approaches to writing informed by contemporary culture, such as use of new technologies, multimedia crossovers with music, film and visual art. Through interactions with new artistic concepts introduced in class, students will learn to examine their individual predilections and write creatively in their own voice. Students will learn to hone their compositional and artistic skills in a stimulating atmosphere, participating in a mixture of lectures, workshops, and reading, writing, and listening assignments. The class will be further enlivened by visits from successful local artists and a rich variety of creative projects.
