Graduate Courses Summer 2014
ENG 628: TEACHING CREATIVE WRITING - DR. ANGELA BALL (5-WK 2)
This course will constitute a communal effort to gather, assimilate, and process all the most useful lore, advice, information, and techniques relating to the teaching of creative writing classes in poetry and fiction. Predicated on the notion that the best advice about writing cuts across genre, the course aims to help students develop teaching skills beyond their own primary area of expertise, skills that will be invaluable to them as teachers seeking to serve the widest possible contingent of students. It aims to help students think usefully about what it means to teach and how to bring their best, most generous selves to bear on the project at hand.
