Writing Specialties: Capstone Seminar

Course Code: BCPW 4000

Academic Year: 2023-2024

This course is the first of the Capstone courses where students will lay the groundwork for a project of their choosing: a novel, a book of short stories, a graphic novel, a volume of poetry, a play, a feature film script, a television script or a long-form work of creative nonfiction. Students will plan and outline the project, conduct appropriate research, and write a minimum of the first third of the proposed manuscript. In a workshop setting, students will receive valuable feedback from their peers and instructor and will gain a new perspective on their own work by offering feedback on the work of others. Readings and writing exercises will be assigned throughout the semester.
