CAEX 6600 - Creative Writing for Social Change♦


(1.5 cr)
Creative writing has a rich history of influencing societal norms and upsetting the status quo. In this 6-week course, graduate students learn how creative writing can be used to advance social change. Students analyze examples of social change writing in poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction and draft a short work of creative writing on their social change passion. Through creative writing, students practice reaching an audience outside their scholarly discipline. They also explore creative writing techniques that can be applied to benefit their scholarly writing. This course is appropriate for both students who have prior experience in creative writing and those who do not.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an enrollment specialist [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
