Creative Writing

Creative Writing (Essays, Short Stores, & Poetry)

This course will give the students the skills in Spanish for writing short stories, poetry, and creative essays. We will use as models of analysis, a selection of essays, short stories, and poems from Contemporary Latin American Literature. In order to achieve part of the course’s premise, which is to learn skillful writing, the student must first learn to read well, and discover how some authors who contributed new literary resources and forms of expression to literary history mastered their craft. As a workshop, the class will mainly deal with the students’ essays, short stories, and poems as the principal subjects of weekly discussions. A strong participation in the critique process is encouraged. (1 unit)
