Reading to Write

Course Code: BCPW 2502

Academic Year: 2023-2024

In this course, students perform close reading on a wide range of works of fiction and nonfiction and learn to identify the key structures and characteristics that define these forms. Through in-class lectures, in-class and online discussions, readings, assignments and exercises, students engage with writing at the micro level (analyzing specific tools and techniques) and the macro level (exploring genres and the art of literary criticism). Ultimately, course assignments help students understand how to draw inspiration and insight from great writing to produce original and lasting works of their own.
