This course will offer students — in a workshop setting — the opportunity to read, discuss, and practice writing the major forms and styles of nonfiction prose, with special attention to understanding, appreciating — and practicing — the essay as a literary genre. Students will express their understanding of this literary form in a series of well-crafted essays. The primary texts in this writing workshop will be the participants’ own prose. Additional readings will be drawn from modern and contemporary essayists.

To be considered for admission to this class, please submit 8-12 photocopied pages of your writing. (I am especially interested in reading your creative nonfiction, and please do not submit your academic prose.) Kindly submit your writing sample, along with an application form, to Professor McQuade's mailbox in 322 Wheeler BY 4:00 P.M., TUESDAY, APRIL 20, AT THE LATEST.

Be sure to read the paragraph concerning creative writing courses on page 1 of this Announcement of Classes for further information regarding enrollment in such courses!
