This semester long elective will allow students to explore and refine their creative writing skills in a variety of different mediums. We will write short stories, poetry, memoirs, spoken word, micro-fiction, multimedia, and many other types of creative, written expression. We will also explore the editorial and publishing process in more depth than a general English class. Student work will culminate in a portfolio of polished work completed by the end of the semester. This elective would be ideal for a student who wants a creative outlet during the day or who is interested in a career in journalism, writing, or publishing. This course will count toward an elective credit.
