This upper-division capstone writing workshop provides students with a forum for extended practice in creative writing, literary criticism, critical research, or hybrid works. It offers space and community for students to bring their work in progress to presentable, submittable, or publishable quality. The workshop is intended for students who have significant college-level experience in working creatively and critically with texts, and who are committed to advancing their writing professionally.

Throughout the quarter, students will develop and maintain a portfolio consisting of: writer’s statement; project proposal; evidence of preliminary research; writer’s methodology; peer review worksheets; and final revised, polished work. This program will meet four times a week, with weekly activities consisting of: in-class drafting/workshops, conferences, seminar, peer critique groups, student-led writing café.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:

Writing, literature, publishing, and transmedia-arts. Capstone programs give students the support to further develop a major project of their own invention—open to all kinds of writing, but especially important for those students interested in pursuing an MFA or a career as a writer.
