MFA Writing Workshop I

School of Consciousness and Transformation MFA 7093 6.00

This workshop helps students to find and name the ambitions expressed in their work, and to significantly advance a book-length project—a literary work of art. To that end, critique will focus on technical and craft decisions that enhance or limit the effects the writer hopes to produce. During this course, students will articulate the terms for a strong MFA project. They will learn how to speak with a degree of confidence about their ambitions for their work, and about their influences and predecessors. Students will practice techniques for reviewing, critiquing, and capturing the essence of the work of their peers. In addition, the workshop requires attendance at the Saturday Night @CIIS series, which features cross-disciplinary work and conversation, as well as exposure to a variety of guest artists.
