Section 1: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9:00-11:40 AM
Professor: Sean Lovelace
This course is designed for MA students in the Creative Writing program at BSU, but is open to all graduate students interested in intensive reading about the art and science of creative writing.
We will read various texts about writing, and students will write critically and sometimes creatively concerning these texts. In this course, we will try to address some of the many questions of interest to serious writers, and to students who are considering creative writing as a profession. We will also include a visit from our Creative Writing faculty and a discussion of a text selected by each.
