Creative Writing Class SyllabusCurriculum for Creative Writing
Start of creative writing Sample curriculum
It' my writing hours are holy years. This transgenre course focuses on the essentials that enable lively and efficient writing across all styles (especially writing fictions and poems, but also essays, dramas and even, in short, screenwriting: significant detail, lyricism and catchy images; innovative metaphors and parables; and genuine voices, dialogues and characterisations.
Fiction/poetry for three fifteen minutes per weekly for the first five weekly periods of the year. We' ll do several classroom activities that you can add to the number. Or you can use the text's "Warm Up" and "Try This" excercises as a basis for fifteen-minute excercises. A minimum of two verbal reviews of another student's history, two histories, poetry, essays or theatre pieces, each in the course of the weekly work sheet, one review before and one after the middle of the year.
Be prepared to debate all the authors' work for that particular date, in whatever genre they write in. Verbal reviews of at least two novels, poetry, essays or theatre pieces in imaginative writing. In essence, you will chair the debate on the work you have selected (see curriculum below). Suppose we've all been reading the play and don't need a recap.
Rather than saying that you like or dislike a play or why (critical evaluation), concentrate on some technical things that are important for the text being read that date (critical analysis) by quoting two or three samples from the text to assist your obsession. At the end of this handouts, use the cover page, the "Workshop Symbol Code" and "A Workshops Guide for Creative Writing" to highlight each part of the work, write marginally comments throughout the script and use the abridged icons at the end of this curriculum.
According to what kind of criticism the writer demands, please make a deskriptive and/or descriptive and / or prescriptural critiques of the play as composed (not necessarily as you wrote it) by debating its topics, characterisation, images, poetry, etc. (Helpful recipes involve issues of chance, randomness or truth, Daggerel, abstract and the like - for example, if you found the acts or dialog of a figure less than trustworthy, or a poet too much like a 19th-century poetry.
There are many recipes that are not helpful, which include fussy debates about typing errors or writing the play you would have written instead of the writer. Design at least two new tales, novel sections, essay, short film, or screenwriting film, or, if you wish, a run of five films or five new poetry to be published at the beginning of the term - all for your end-of-semester collection.
Definitive folder: a default Manuela file (with your name and the class section on the tab) containing no less than about thirty pages of fiction or fifteen verses or a mixture of both (two reworked histories of eight to fifteen pages in length, a history and three or four shortfilms or verses, a long history of no more than thirty-five pages or two to three novel sections, for example).
Writing creatively is not the same as participating creatively. In case you have to miss classes, please call me in advance, especially if you have registered for a class on that date. More than three out of office hours (excused or unexcused) can significantly influence your score by just setting a low rate of attendees. When you arrive five and a half hours too early in class, you will be too slow; when you arrive thirty and a half hours too slow in class, you will be considered to be away for no excuse.
In case you miss a large number of lessons, please make a notation of the date and let the course be canceled. Curriculum: While we may decide to do classroom practice or other activity instead of debating the allocated histories for specific dates, please still study the allocated histories carefully enough so that you can debate them informatively.
