Fall 2019 Creative Writing Course

ENGL 3019, Section 34
Writer’s Workshop: Spells, Proverbs & Incantations
Rose Hill Campus, Mon/Thurs 11:30am - 12:45 pm


This is a multi-disciplinary creative writing course that takes as its subject forms of sacred literature that have been pushed to the margins of Western societies with the rise of the Enlightenment and its obsession with rationalism. Associated with women, the body, the indigenous, people of color, and oral tradition, these modalities of intention-based literature help us both understand and challenge the ways words function within the limits of Western epistemologies. Students will read deeply into this literature and workshop their own creative work.
