PAST 430 Senior Writer's Workshop II

Senior Writer's Workshop II is the last half of a year-long workshop for advanced writers. In Senior Writer's Workshop I the student will have chosen a genre and created the first half of an original work (or series of works, in the case of some media). In this course, that work will be finished, rewritten, polished, and readied to pitch or send out by the end of the year. Students will use the shared, cross­ genre vocabulary and experience they have developed together to rigorously workshop each other's work, actively participating in each piece's growth through critique, research recommendations, co-editing, in-class performance of the work, etc. The course may also include periodic visits from professionals writing in the genres chosen by the seniors.
