Creative Writing in Spanish
In this course students will write creative works in Spanish in four genres: short story, personal essay, theater and poetry. Following the reading of selected works in each area, students will develop, revise and complete original work. After a combination of theory and creative modeling, students will engage in extensive brainstorming, outlining, writing and revising, in and out of class, on both their own work and that of peers, to not only understand the dynamics of each genre from a theoretical and practical perspective, but to also gain expertise in the creation and appreciation of each genre through the development of their own writing. The ultimate goal is for each student to compile a personal anthology of her/his work done in this course.
