ENGL-260   The Craft of Writing

A course that invites students to write in a variety of genres, exploring composition from two perspectives-how texts are constructed and what they accomplish. From these two perspectives, students will consider the two classical categories of written genres: poetics (the study of belletristic writing) and rhetoric (the study of persuasive writing). This is a foundational course for students who are interested in advanced study of writing. Prerequisite: English 101 or 102 or approval of the instructor.
