Comments: This course examines the critical and theoretical contexts ofvarious genres. The focus in the theory and practice course is ongaining a more comprehensive understanding of the writing offiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction to inspire, inform, andhelp craft your own writing in that genre. The difference betweenEnglish 402 and a writing course or workshop course is that wewill read theoretical/craft pieces that will provide a lensthrough which to look at that form, one that you can apply toyour own work. Expect to write three short "application" pieceswhere you apply the theories to specific works and to create aportfolio of new creative work in all three genres.
